Healthcare is a global field. Students studying Nursing are exploring health issues associated with personal wellness, illness management, health promotion, nutrition, disease, the environment, and the community… so why not the world?  Studying Abroad provides firsthand experience with diverse health practices, health care system models, and a new understanding of how culture influences the practice of medicine.
