My Travel Story

Hey! My name is Nacaela and I am in my first semester of Nursing School at Missouri Western State University. This summer we have the opportunity to go on a study abroad trip to India that counts as one credit hour of class during my 3rd semester. They did this trip last summer and the students came back with experiences and knowledge that you cannot get in a clinical setting. We are setting up an informational meeting to go over more details at a later time, so I will keep this page updated. The trip will be approximately 16 days total in Puttur in Southern India. This area of India is extremely poor and do not have access to healthcare like we do. During this trip, we will be healping the health of children who attend the English-median, Christian school in Putter, and others who live at the orphanage. We will be provided an evidence-based wound care clinic in collaboration with the Good Shepherd hospital. They are estimating the trip to cost anywhere from $2500-$3000, but any extra money will be donated towards the trip to give them more supplies, etc. Most the money will be going to airfare and transportation resources. Being able to go on this trip would mean the world to me and impact my learning as a practicing nurse. Anything will help! Thanks!!
