Healthcare and Leadership in Nursing Abroad - Seville, Spain

Universidad de SevillaPROGRAM OVERVIEW

This 2018 March faculty-led program is designed to provide nursing students with a "real world" perspective on health care, nursing leadership, and culture through a series of local visits, conferences, and cultural activities. During this one week program, students will learn about the differences in healthcare systems between Spain and the U.S., regulatory policies that govern hospitals, roles and responsibilities of Spanish nurses, care of the elderly, and the academic curriculum of Spanish schools of nursing. 


Students will be selected based on both their academic record (minimum GPA of 2.5 at time of application for undergraduates) and the ability of the individual to meet all objectives, participate in all activities, and evaluate all related tasks. Availability is on a first-come-first-serve basis. (Students will be advised of all pre-departure deadlines upon registration.) Students should be able to easily travel using public transportation. A passport is required.

Seville, Spain


Seville is the artistic, cultural and financial capital of Southern Spain. The city is renowned for its warm climate and friendly culture, making it an ideal setting for language learning and cultural integration. A stroll through the city's winding cobblestone streets reveals a wide array of bustling sidewalk cafes and tapas bars, spontaneous flamenco performances and an active nightlife. Internationally known for the grandeur of its Easter Week processions (known as Semana Santa) and April Fair, Seville offers a variety of rich cultural experiences set against historical Roman, Muslim, and Jewish influence.

You will have the opportunity to explore streets built by Rome for its victorious legions. The city of Itálica just a few miles outside Seville is the birthplace of the two first emperors (Trajan and Adrian). You may also visit the minarets and port-defense towers dating back to Seville's Moorish 12th and 13th centuries. The multiple churches in the city show signs of the Middle Ages and the importance of the Catholic faith. Seville, where Christopher Columbus is buried, was the port of the world during the XVI century and is the home of the Indian Archives. If you wish to learn more about modern and contemporary history, the city is full of old pavilions from the Iberoamerican Exposition of 1929 and the Universal Exposition of 1992.



Students will participate in a variety of activities designed to enhance their appreciation of the city’s history and local cultural.  Activities include:

          - visiting Seville CathedralAU Group

          - Welcome Dinner exposing students to local Spanish foods

          - Mediterranean cooking class

          - Bicycle Tour of Seville

          - Tappa's night out
