It's no surprise that the health care world has gone global. The international movement has also made its way to college campuses and especially to Edinboro University's Department of Nursing.
This semester, a group of 14 Edinboro nursing students embarked on a service-learning journey to the Dominican Republic. For eight days, the classroom came to life as students learned first-hand of the health, environmental and nutritional challenges of the Dominican people. Students engaged in hands-on learning – including home health visits to families in the mountainous region – and interacted with nurses from neighborhood primary care clinics, hospitals, diagnostic centers and rehabilitation centers.
