International Learning Represented by Nursing Students During Study Abroad in the Philippines
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International

The purpose of this qualitative study was to explore how undergraduate nursing students represented their learning during a 3-week study abroad course in the Philippines. Data was collected over 5 consecutive summers (1998-2002) from 52 nursing students' weekly journals during their study abroad experiences. Their journals were reviewed through a template analysis from a conceptual framework for global education by Kauffman, Martin, Weaver, and Weaver (1992). Under INTELLECTUAL DEVELOPMENT, nursing students reported ?doing? experiences of basic and advanced level skills, ?dealing with...? experiences with unique clinical situations, and ?discovery? insights about nursing knowledge. Under PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT, they described ?learning about self? involving appreciation, lifetime experiences, and sensitivity to being a minority. Under EXPANDED INTERNATIONAL PERSPECTIVES, they revealed various experiences of ?cultural adjustment? ranging from culture shock to appreciation for others' cultures, overcoming stereotypes, and contextualizing patients. These representations of international learning during a brief study abroad experience portray unique learning experiences beyond the categories established by Kauffman et al (1992) such as elementary groundwork for cultural competence.
