Global Connections

Global nursing is an eye-opening experience that helps you appreciate cultural differences, explore other kinds of health care systems, and see how your own beliefs and values impact your caregiving. Cedar Crest offers many global nursing opportunities. You can spend a few weeks in rural Belize caring for village residents, study at partner nursing schools in Sweden or Ghana, and get to know international students on the Cedar Crest campus. A global perspective is important for nurses in our multicultural society, and it’s also considered a strong component of leadership.

Nursing Opportunities

As part of an elective course on global nursing, eight Cedar Crest students spent two weeks in rural Belize. Along with two nursing instructors and a medical student, they went door-to-door, meeting with village residents and inviting those who needed care to come to makeshift clinics. There, they checked for vital signs, screened blood pressure and glucose levels, and provided medications for illnesses which in many cases had gone untreated for a long time.

Nursing Students in Belize

“You can’t save the world—or even a small village,” said participant Samantha Barbato ’11. “The biggest lesson I learned is how much these people accomplish on a daily basis with so little.”

Ongoing Partnerships

Cedar Crest nursing students have opportunities to study in very different settings.

Nursing Professors in Ghana

“Global learning will broaden your worldview,” says Sandra Leh, R.N., Ph.D., Associate Professor. A global perspective is important for nurses in our multicultural society, and it’s also considered a strong component of leadership.
