Study Abroad Nursing Programs
In 2008, Dr. Caroyln Speros began teaching a course for upper division undergraduate
and graduate level nursing students interested in increasing their understanding of
international health care issues as they relate to nursing. The course includes travel
to Switzerland and France in order to broaden the studentsâ€™ world view and provide
a global perspective of nursing and health care in a publicly-funded system. In addition
to visiting hospitals and clinics, the students tour the headquarters of UNAIDS, the
United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS, as well as the World Health Organization and
the International Council of Nursing.
