International Collaborations and Programs
william f. connell school of nursing
Boston College’s commitment to internationalization lies at the core of its mission. Educating men and women of good will who are lifelong learners and understand the human condition is the cornerstone of what is taught at Boston College through classes on campus and educational service trips around the world.
As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, the William F. Connell School of Nursing has a greater obligation to produce nurses who understand global healthcare needs and have the cultural competency required to lead in an increasingly global healthcare economy. Students who travel internationally are able to experience diverse healthcare needs and cultural perspectives firsthand. Connell School faculty are able to draw on these experiences in the classroom, reinforcing students' cultural insights.
Currently the Connell School offers six global experiences for its students, many of which can be used toward course credit for undergraduate students and nurse practitioner supervised hours for graduate students. Alumni may also join the Haiti service trip. Learn more about the Connell School global experiences below.
