My Experience Abroad:

I had the opportunity to do clinical nursing work in the NHS which was fascinating and helped me to better understand how different healthcare systems operate and how the role of nurses varies globally. As a nursing student pursuing a minor in global health, this experience was a great experiential supplement to my coursework at Penn.
