Service Learning for the RN to BSN Program

In addition to your online course work, you will complete your clinical hours through a service-learning experience either locally or internationally during your last course: Integrated Experiential Learning. You will work with our service learning coordinator to create your experience.

Cost

You are responsible for all program and travel costs. Costs will vary depending on the program of choice and its duration.

“I highly recommend anyone to experience this lifetime opportunity. It broadens one’s views of the world and allows us to realize that our current issues are not as significant as other people in the world experience. This opportunity has driven me to focus on the social and health disparities that other countries face – as well as mine.”

—Yesenia Martinez
