The School of Nursing supports global learning for all degree levels. We aim to expose our students to global health issues, cultural awareness and competence, social justice and healthcare development for disadvantaged communities in the United States and abroad. Our service learning approach envelopes our academic programs with community service in combination with critical, reflective thinking.
This service learning mission runs in the fall with a focus on pediatrics and medical-surgical practice. The mission focuses on interprofessional learning while providing free medical and major surgical care to the impoverished people of the urban Kingston area. On average, each mission provides primary care to over 1,000 people.
