Students who have completed one semester of nursing fundamentals should consider developing their nursing skills in the western-Ukrainian city of Chernivtsi.

“Students have the opportunity to experience healthcare in a developing country and the ability to compare and contrast it with current healthcare in the United States,” said Marianne Craven, co-director of the program. “They will have a rich cultural experience culminating in a visit to the Crimea where Florence Nightingale is renowned for her development of nursing science.”

Travel within Russia includes the surrounding villages of Chernivtsi, the Carpathian Mountains, and the coast of the Black Sea. Within the beautiful land, centuries of history lie in the European city near the borders of Moldova and Romania.
