Local Global Practica Overview

International clinical or study abroad experiences are a good fit with the College of Nursing and the University of Saskatchewan internationalization goals.

Currently, there are several international study abroad opportunities for students in the 4th year senior practicum courses (N450.9 - Practice Integration - {Winter} Australia, Philippines, Finland & Tanzania), and in 3rd year of the BSN Program (N308.3 Integrating Mental Health into Nursing Practice {Spring 2014} Tanzania ONLY) and N331.3 Maternal Child & Adolescent Family Centered Nursing Practice {Spring 2015} Tanzania ONLY).  All experiences may not be offered every year.  Selection of students for these experiences is based on good academic standing, a letter of application, references, and an interview.  Students planning to go to Africa or the Philippines may want to take the International Health Course, CH&EP 402.3, offered in Saskatoon in Term 1 at the U of S.

There is an Information Session held during February or March of each year that will give you the most up-to-date information for that year.  An email is sent out to students with a poster with the details.
