NURSING FOCUSES EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING: EMPOWERMENT AND EXPLORATION 


This program to Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland with a brief stop in London on the way offers students the opportunity to explore multiple facets of trauma informed care in a variety of settings. We will learn from subject matter experts in the field and explore historic sites throughout Ireland. Highlights in Northern Ireland include the historic city of Belfast which was once marked by conflict now dedicated to peace and tolerance. We will visit the WAVE trauma center where we will hear from victims of the Troubles and their families including powerful dialogue about the lasting impact of the conflict and interventions targeted to meet their needs. Students will visit patients in the community with district nurses and see Irish healthcare through the lens of nurses in the field. We will visit the Titanic museum, historic castles, and the geologic wonder of Giant’s Causeway. In Donegal, we will explore the beautiful cliffs of Slieve League and appreciate the authentic Irish tweed of Triona. In Dublin, we will experience lectures at the prestigious Trinity College, see the Book of Kells, visit the Epic emigration museum, step aboard the Jeanie Johnson Emigrant Ship, and stroll across the Ha’penny Bridge and enjoy traditional Irish music and storytelling. Traveling into the lush, green Irish countryside, you may kiss the Blarney Stone and come away with the gift of gab!

Note: This program requires moderate physical activity. Be prepared to walk at least a minimum of two miles most days.

Please review program dates (this program will have classes in Nashville prior to departure). Please make necessary arrangements for your time in Nashville.
