Abstract
Study abroad programs for health care students, and nursing students in particular, are some of the most difficult programs to develop due to stringent academic and professional accreditation standards combined with students’ desire to graduate within the expected time frame. The College of Nursing at Sacred Heart University has taken on these challenges, creating a program with the Institute of Technology, Tralee, that was recognized with an Honorable Mention by the 2016 IIE Heiskell Awards. During this session, you’ll learn more about their program and how you can develop a similar program, providing opportunities for students and faculty while taking into account partnerships and funding resources.
