For nursing instructors
Many nursing programs include a tour of the REAL. LIFE. Exhibit in their curricula because it helps nursing students explore global health issues and experience what real life is like for people served by the nurses who volunteer with Medical Teams International.
“I can't imagine our curriculum without the REAL. LIFE. Exhibit. Our nursing students are changed by going through the exhibit—not only as future nurses who may have an impact on global healthcare but also as people and members of our global community.” —Carol Thorn, nursing faculty, Clackamas Community College
Consider using this assignment [PDF], which nursing students at Clackamas Community College complete in their Foundations of Nursing course.
Point your students to the Learning Zone, created by our International Programs staff.
Your students may also value reading stories from the field in our volunteer blogs.
