Nursing Students Study Abroad in Ireland

ODU has partnered with Learn International to create an interprofessional cultural immersion experience in Ireland. Students are introduced to global health concepts, including demographic and epidemiological transitions, the burden of disease, the impact of key health conditions on individuals and on communities, critical issues in the organization and delivery of health services, and the multi-directional links between health and social and economic factors. The course includes pre-trip learning and preparation that is conducted online. Students will prepare targeted learning activities for local citizens at the Community Health Center (Ionad naomh Phadrig Link: http://www.ionadnp.ie). Some examples of health-related workshops previously conducted include hand-washing hygiene for elementary school aged children, oral cancer screening, home exercises using Theraband for older adults, glucose monitoring and diabetes education. Student participated in a short course on the Irish language (Gaelic), a tour of health care facilities and information about the Irish National Health system, and of course, singing and dancing at the pub. In addition there are visits to health care facilities and field trips of cultural and historic interest. You may enjoy this video from our program last year.
