This summer, students of the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing's accelerated bachelor of science in nursing (ABSN) program embarked on a two-week immersion experience at four sites around the world—the Virgin Islands, West Virginia, the Bahamas and the Dominican Republic.

From May 30 to June 15, ABSN students are working with local health care providers and community partners to provide health care, community assessments, program evaluations and a sustainability project in each location. The ABSN immersion experience gives nursing students the opportunity to hone their clinical skills while providing care to underserved populations.

Students are blogging about their experiences abroad at The slide show above includes quotes from student bloggers.
