The First Experience of International Travel: Contributing to Global Nursing
Smith-Stoner, Marilyn; Gonzalez, Evelyn
International Research and Review, v1 n1 p75-80 Fall 2011
Providing experiences for international travel is an important aspect of higher education, and creating high-quality international exchanges can be a challenge. Developing appropriate experiences for nursing students may be especially difficult due to the complexity of regulatory and accreditation requirements. However, it is possible to find like-minded educators and provide students with enriching opportunities to compare healthcare and nursing practice. This article describes the development of a successful multi-dimensional nursing research partnership between three universities in California, Karlstad, Sweden, and Gjovik, Norway. An additional partnership between Karlstad University in Karlstad, Sweden and California State University San Bernardino includes student and faculty exchanges.
