Global Health Trip - Vietnam

Travel to Vietnam with School of Nursing!

About the Trip

This annual trip to Vietnam is held during Winter Break and helps develop and enhance international appreciation and understanding of Health Care implementation across Vietnam in hope to prepare nursing students to work in a culturally diverse healthcare enviroment.

Program details:

  • 4-week no-credit program
  • nursing students must have already completed MedSurg 1

Students will be exposed to history, culture, and healthcare practices throughout Vietnam. In collaboration with Hue University of Medicine and Pharmacy, this program benefits both US and Vietnamese Faculty and students in comparing and contrasting different healthcare systems, teaching modalities and nursing practices and in developing insight into the life and culture of citizens through exploration of values, attitude, art, literature, and daily living practices to ultimately be more inclusive and culturally sensitive.
