School of Nursing Offers Unprecedented Integration of Peace Corps and Graduate Studies
In an increasingly international career market, the U-M School of Nursing is meeting the demand for globally-oriented healthcare professionals. Master’s students in the School of Nursing who have chosen to add the new International Health Concentration (IHC) to their degree may now fulfill the concentration’s hands-on training requirement through Peace Corps service work. Starting in September 2012, U-M nursing students in any Master’s program track pursuing the IHC will be eligible to combine their study with the Peace Corps’ Master’s International (MI) program. Students who choose this path will graduate in four years with an MS degree and significant professional and leadership experience provided by a 27-month term of service in the Peace Corps.
