This is a program designed for senior level nursing students. The students are enrolled in required classes with key components of community nursing and health practices. For those students in the program, their community health partners and experiences will be in Cuba.
- The program fulfills part of the nursing major, so it requires that students have completed all necessary coursework to this point in the program.
- The only students eligible for the program are senior level nursing students at Altoona. They are recruited and selected for by the faculty in their classes during their junior year.
- Admission in the course and permission to travel with the group are at the discretion of the faculty leader and/or academic department hosting the course. Academic standing and disciplinary or conduct issues may impact eligibility.
During the embedded travel component, housing will consist of private accommodations/homestays.
Students pay regular Penn State tuition (either in-state or out-of-state) for the credits associated with the embedded course. Travel costs, lodging, meals, excursions, and other fees are determined by the program budget which is set by the program leader. Please consult the program leader for additional information.
For more information about this course, please contact the program leader: Delores McCreary by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The process for enrolling in an embedded course varies according to the instructor and/or department. The program leader has indicated that in order to enroll in the course and travel component, students must have a GPA of 2.5 or greater. The faculty who are leading the program will interview the Nursing students during the summer. This course is filled for Fall 2019.
Studying Abroad with a Disability
Many students with disabilities successfully study abroad each year. Please note that other cultures may have different attitudes and available accommodations regarding disabilities. While we cannot guarantee the accessibility of all program sites and locations, specific accommodations may be arranged in consultation with our office, the Student Disability Resources office, and our partners abroad. To prepare for success, students are strongly encouraged to research the country and program location to consider if and how they will manage their disabilities abroad in advance of selecting a program. Students with disabilities and other diverse backgrounds can begin their research on our Diversity Awareness Abroad page.
