Study Abroad Experiences for BSN Students

There are a number of possibilities for student experiences abroad, depending on your interests, focus, and required courses. In some programs, students have the option of completing part of their coursework abroad. In the past few years, students have gone to such countries and regions as Thailand, Chile, St. Lucia, Scotland, and Uganda, among others. Learn more about Study Abroad programs through the university.

List of countries for 2015:

  • China
  • Denmark
  • Hong Kong
  • Ireland
  • The Netherlands
  • Nicaragua
  • Virgin Islands

Note: Sites change from year to year.

Thirty one (31) FPB senior students went abroad in 2014. This represents 33% of the BSN senior class.

Except for the Guatemala program, these trips are available for BSN seniors only. Please contact Jesse Honsky, BSN Program Assistant Director, and Samira Hussney, Director of International Health Programs, for more information.

Guatemala (MSN only)

This experience is only for MSN students. FPB collaborates with Refuge International on this project. Our MSN students go with Refuge International to Guatemala to help in a remote area where there is no access to healthcare. Because of the number of students participating we have two groups going in 2014: one in August and one in October. Our students are accompanied by a preceptor and they see between 900 and 1,200 patients during one week. This experience has been very popular. Acceptance is based on qualifications, recommendation from the MSN program director and when the application is made.
