Going Abroad

The Center for Global Health Nursing works to increase educational opportunities for students and post-doctoral fellows who aspire to become global citizens, learn from different cultures and health settings, and share and contribute their knowledge and compassion. We encourage students at all degree levels to develop an understanding of global health issues and of cultural, economic and social factors that affect health and healthcare in the United States and abroad.

Looking for opportunities?

We encourage you to find your own opportunities, and a great place to start is through UW Study Abroad. Each UW campus has programs available and usually accept UW students from all other UW campuses.
