USA Nursing in the Dominican Republic
This is an international service learning course with an emphasis on providing culturally competent care through an immersion experience. In collaboration with Foundation for Peace (FFP), free health care clinics will be provided to families residing in impoverished areas in rural Dominican Republic. On our excursion day, we will relax on one of the beautiful beaches. Throughout the program, we will enjoy authentic Dominican food, learn about the history and culture of the Dominican Republic, and practice our Spanish speaking skills!

Participants will reside in Foundations for Peace accommodations. All meals except on excursion day are included in the program cost.
