Global Opportunities for Nursing Students

Engage the complexities of global health and drive social change

The Office of Global Affairs provides students with diverse transformative global learning opportunities in different health contexts and cultures. These programs can be travel based, virtual, or local and they are open to any nursing student, not only those in the global health minor or concentration programs.

Funding for Global Experiences

In support of global education, there are a range of funding opportunities available that provide support for educational programs, internships, service projects and research in international settings. Students are encouraged to investigate as many funding options as possible. Learn more about global nursing scholarship opportunities.

Immerse yourself in various global health perspectives in innovative practice, research and advocacy initiatives. This program will kick off with U-M School of Nursing Global Summer Institute on May 11, 12, 13 where you will hear from keynote speakers, as well as join skills sessions to gain practical tips designed to advance your academic, professional and personal engagement with global health.

Through May and June, join the weekly Global Health Coffee and Conversation Series that bring lived perspectives from different cultures and health systems in various fields in health from maternal health, to mental health, community care, access and changing systems. These are designed to be interactive conversations where students will participate in the conversations to deepen their understanding in various fields of global health. Students are required to complete a reflection paper, which can be showcased and/or presented at the U-M School of Nursing Global Fair in Fall.

Additionally, there are individual global heath projects available for graduate students. Please contact the U-M School of Nursing Office of Global Affairs if you are interested in setting up a custom virtual global health project.
