Global Classrooms Curriculum Integration Grant

This project is ongoing.

Students from Kenya and the US in similar entry to practice nursing education classes will connect with international peers about a universally important health issue, share clinical experiences, country specific pregnancy, birthing, newborn and general care, and information about the childbearing family.  Cultural exchanges help students become more aware of their own culture and health care systems. Many students cannot incorporate study abroad into their curriculum but this global learning opportunity will reach nursing students at two university Schools of Nursing and enhance cultural-awareness, communication, and clinical care at both universities. With the addition of the global perspective it will enhance students' ability to appreciate and interact with persons here in the US and international visitors. Students will practice communication, empathy, reflection, and cultural humility during the global classroom exchanges that will enhance their nursing care in approaching childbearing families from other cultures and holistic care of other patients.


The Office of Undergraduate Research recommends that you attend an info session or advising before contacting faculty members or project contacts about research opportunities. We'll cover the steps to get involved, tips for contacting faculty, funding possibilities, and options for course credit. Once you have attended an Office of Undergraduate Research info session or spoken to an advisor, you can use the "Who to contact" details for this project to get in touch with the project leader and express your interest in getting involved.
