Students to complete global experience in U.S. Virgin Islands

Students to complete global experience in U.S. Virgin Islands

A group of USF Nursing students is heading to U.S. Virgin Islands. They will spend two weeks in St. Croix to provide care for the local community, as part of their summer 2016 global health community experience.

Undergraduate students, under the leadership of Elizabeth Jordan, DNSc, associate professor and senior associate dean of the undergraduate programs, will work with local organizations and healthcare facilities to learn and practice.

During this trip, they expect to work in various areas including a local hospital emergency room, prenatal clinic, present at local schools, and attend a community health fair.

This global community health experience fulfills students’ six-credit requirement for their community health didactic and clinical courses, an initiative developed through the College’s POWER with Nursing: Partnership Opportunities for Wellness, Education and Research. This is students’ third global experience in St. Croix.

To keep up with students’ summer adventure in the Caribbean island, follow them on the blog HERE. They will post pictures and thoughts about their journey throughout the entire trip.
