Gobal Perspectives on Nursing


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 students’ 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.
