Abstract:
Nursing Study Abroad in Honduras: A Collaborative Community Health Project
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2006
Author:Wafer, Melissa, RN, MSN
P.I. Institution Name:Southeastern Louisiana University
There is much interest in engaging college students in service-learning programs. University based study abroad programs provide fertile ground for service-learning by placing students in communities all over the world where there is tremendous need.   In 2005, a nursing study abroad program from Southeastern Louisiana University (SELU) engaged students in a collaborative service-learning project in the communities of Guaimaca and Talanga, Honduras.  SELU School of Nursing, Universidad Nacional Autonomia de Honduras School of Nursing, and the Episcopal Church of Honduras collaborated to implement a short-term medical mission. This unique program provided community health clinical experiences for Honduran and North American nursing students.  The program focus was provision of a short-term medical mission as a structured community health initiative. This presentation showcases the evaluation of the study abroad program and recommendations for the 2006 service-learning collaboration.
