At USD, you will have opportunities to serve others on a local and global level throughout your education. Service-learning experiences complement the nursing curriculum by providing you with hands-on experience helping others outside traditional health care settings.
USD nursing students have the opportunity to travel to Guatemala to provide health care services to people with limited access to quality healthcare. Working together with students from the physical therapy, physician assistant and occupational therapy programs, students will provide services ranging from health screens to neuro-musculoskeletal exams. You'll also experience and learn about the culture in Guatemala while gaining a unique perspective on providing health care services.
Additional service learning experiences, such as assisting a children's program through training staff and families, are also available.
