International Nursing Opportunities


If you are considering international travel, we invite you to view the video from a previous trip to Zambia, an international senior clinical experience. This trip will be life-changing filled with fun, growth, and cultural challenges. 

The NURS 414 Population and Global Health course taught in the senior spring semester includes a 3-week clinical immersion experience that can be completed locally or in Zambia at Macha Mission Hospital. The course is taught over 8 weeks.  Week 1 includes upfront theory content.  During weeks 2-4 students have the option to complete their clinical hours locally or in Zambia where they will focus on the care of patient groups in a rural African community.  In weeks 5-8 students complete the remaining clincial hours in local community clinical agencies near Messiah University.
