Global Health in Diverse Cultures is a program for undergraduate nursing students. The program will increase my understanding of international healthcare issues as they relate to nursing and public health. The course will provide an oppurtunity for me to explore healthcare delivery and practice in an international setting. Costa Rica is an ideal location for this class because it provides universal healthcare for its citizens and has one of the best public health systems in Latin America. The program will include site visits to public hospitals and private clinics as well as oppurtunities to engage in health promotion activiites and intereact with health care practitioners.
This will be my first time to leave the United States and I am so excited! Please consider helping me on my journey to become the greatest nurse I can be and learning more about the world we live in.
