This program will help students gain an understanding of international health care, specifically, Ethiopia's health care system. Throughout the semester, students will attend a series of seminars preparing them for the experience in Ethiopia. Students will learn about the culture and history of the host country and the health care needs of Ethiopians. They will also learn to identify barriers and facilitators to knowledge sharing through interactions and experiences with the people of the host country. This program is an observational and leadership development experience, with focus upon nursing care and education in a low resource country. While abroad, students will have the opportunity to visit local hospitals and clinics, shadow Ethiopian nurses in hospital wards, and provide education to nursing students. Students will conduct a leadership project based on the health care needs of the host country identified by the University of Gondar nursing faculty and students. This unique experience will provide students with the opportunity to gain a broad view of global nursing.

During spring break, students work under faculty supervision in rural villages, hospitals, and schools in Choluteca to provide education to health care workers and students and to provide screenings and medical treatment to patients.
