Off-Campus Learning Opportunities

We offers several unique opportunities for students to participate in off-campus study programs. These programs provide opportunities for you to experience different cultures and diverse health care systems.

The off-campus study programs may be taken for college credit or a non-credit option may also be selected. The length of time for the programs will vary depending on the nature of the experience selected.

The England Experience

The Department of Nursing offers a nursing-related portion of the England Experience. This experience is available each December for two weeks before Christmas. The group who went to England in December 2010 blogged about their trip here.

Sights frequently visited include:

  • Tours of Shakespeare's birthplace, Ann Hathaway's Cottage and Mary Arden's house
  • London City tour, Westminster Abbey, Tower of London, and St. Paul's Cathedral
  • Tour of the Houses of Parliament
  • Tours of Stonehenge, Bath, Dover Castle, and Canterbury, and Christ's Church in Oxford

  • Visit to a London health care facility*
  • Tour of Florence Nightingale's childhood church and home*
  • Tour of the Nightingale Museum*
  • Patient home visits with district nurses in Stratford

It is possible to receive either Senior Year Experience credit or Independent Study credit for the experience by contacting the faculty coordinators prior to the trip.
