NAU in Guatemala - Nursing with Dr. Kim Gould
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Nursing Education Abroad Program allows nursing students the opportunity to enhance nursing practice and knowledge as they provide care in a global environment. This is an opportunity for global nursing growth and competence through cultural immersion in international health care. In addition, the Physician Assistant students are invited to experience an interprofessional opportunity in global health care. Participants in the program gain clinical experience by caring for the under-served populations of Guatemala. Clinical experiences will offer primary health screenings to the local community of Santa Maria de Jesus, Antigua, Guatemala.
The women and families of Guatemala suffer from a level of inequality and widespread poverty within Latin America. Access to quality health care is scarce. Preventable diseases often result in death. By conducting health care clinics for this global community the people of Guatemala will have quality health care access. Additionally, the nursing students will provide care and experience the opportunity to advance health care initiatives for an under-served population.
