I would have loved to do this trip over again after I have gotten the NCLEX out of the way.

About

This course provides nursing students the opportunity for an academic international experience. Coursework will begin shortly before departure -  students will  receive several briefings to prepare them for the tropical environment. The following two weeks students are in the Dominican Republic where they work with clinicians from the United States and the Dominican Republic. This includes several days of nursing activities in a number of clinics supported by the Episcopal dioceses clinics. The students will also work at a major public regional medical center and make community health visits. The goal is to provide students with broad exposure to nursing in another culture and to practicing nursing in another language. The expectations are rigorous, as this is a six credit course.
