Exchange Students from Spain Study at VCU School of Nursing
VCU School of Nursing
Students from the University of Cordoba in Spain are visiting VCU's School of Nursing as part of a three-week student exchange program through the university's Center for Integrative Mediterranean Studies. Their visit follows a similar experience that VCU nursing students had last May at the University of Cordoba.
The new exchange program focuses on comparing nursing education and the primary health care systems in the United States and Spain. Students will shadow VCU students, participate in patient simulation exercises and spend time at the sites of the school's community outreach locations, such as the Mosby Resource Center and Cross-Over Clinic.
