Upcoming study abroad opportunities
International Nurses Program
The majority of nurses worldwide practice in an environment completely isolated from their international peers– therefore missing the beneficial exchange of knowledge and practices. Nurses in low to middle income countries (LMICs) provide care in clinical settings with no continued education or formal on-the-job training. The International Nurses Program has partnered with institutions in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, Can Tho, Vietnam, and Kathmandu, Nepal to create a variety of projects based on each institution’s needs, which includes; program evaluation, creating program curriculum, developing QI Standardization tools. Program open for DNP students only.

Exploration Seminars are short-term study abroad programs (3-4 weeks) led by UW faculty that take place during the gap period between the end of the UW summer quarter and beginning of autumn quarter. Similar to UW Programs, Exploration Seminars focus on specific themes pertinent to the program location. Most Exploration Seminars do not require foreign language background. Students earn five credits for the seminar.

Other Study Abroad Options
Omprakash has partnered with the University of Washington to offer the UW Engaged Learning Abroad program. This program enables UW students to find immersive internships, research, and service opportunities with grassroots social impact projects in over 40 countries around the world. UW students can pursue internships related to health, education, economic development, refugees, disabilities, gender relations, and more. The program is open to students with Junior standing or above and a minimum 3.0 GPA. It is intentionally designed to be more affordable, ethical, and educational than other existing options. Students will prepare for their global experiences with a pre-departure training course (GENST 348; SLN 21525), and will have the option of earning additional academic credit for demonstrated learning during their immersive experiences.
