This program focuses on learning more about nursing practices in another part of the world. Students will have the opportunity to compare and contrast the health care systems in the United States and Belize by touring different medical facilities abroad. The program focuses on strengthening students' perspectives in the health care system and discovering alternative forms of medicine that can be utilized effectively. While on this week long program, students will find themselves immersed in the culture while touring but more importantly students will explore and learn the health programs in Belize.
