The purpose of this research is threefold. First, discuss the process required to develop nursing courses in international health policy at the undergraduate nursing bachelor of science curriculum. Second, to investigate and discuss the developed course impact on the USA undergraduate nursing students,' reflecting on their experiential experience of health policies in a global perspective. Third, authors and students' perspectives will be discussed of this travel/study course that is aimed at exploring the healthcare policies in the Eurasian Middle-Eastern country of Turkey, and how these policies influence the delivery of health care to mothers, infants and children. This course concluded with a ten day visit abroad to Turkey. The study included visits to a university children's hospital, a NICU, an orphanage, a college of nursing, a school for children with special needs, and an international organization devoted to maternal, infant and child health care. Students had an opportunity to immerse themselves in Turkish culture and history, health care practices for infants and children, and discuss health policies with other health care professionals, student nurses and a Turkish Ministry of Health representative. Students explored the impact that agencies such as the Red Cross/ Red Crescent, World Health Organization (W.H.O.), Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, United Nations International Children's Fund (U.N.I.C.E.F.) and other governmental and non-governmental organizations have on the health of infants and children in developing nations. Based upon the literature the authors identified a need in the undergraduate curriculum to develop nursing courses that expose nursing students to health policy issues at a global level, and to assist in their understanding of nursings' responsibility to global health issues and policy making
