This variable 2-3 credit hour course is offered to both undergraduate and graduate students. The core 2 credit hour course includes a 2 week intensive study abroad that is conducted in N. Ireland (NI) and includes seminars at the University of Ulster and in select clinical settings. Students will examine the cultural, political, and economic forces influencing health care and nursing needs; status of nursing education, licensure, and practice; and health disparities in NI compared to those in the USA.  An additional 1 credit hour web-based option will be offered the week immediately after the 2 weeks in NI for students who choose the 3 credit hour option. The 3 credit hour option will allow undergraduate students to use the class to meet an upper division nursing requirement.
