Global Health Nursing

Global Health Nursing offers students the opportunity to examine health and nursing issues that affect the global community, ranging from communicable and non-communicable disease around the world to concerns of diverse populations living in the United States. This elective course and service learning experience focuses on population health, cultural awareness, social justice, and health disparities, partnering with community clinics and organizations to address the health needs of a particular country or region.
