Grenada: Health Partnerships in Action

Grenada: Health Partnerships in Action





Program Description 

Global service learning in nursing provides an opportunity for students to develop skills within a cultural context. This aligns with the San José State University mission statement, to provide "multi-cultural and global perspectives gained through intellectual and social exchange with people of diverse economic and ethnic backgrounds."
Students completing this faculty led program will collaborate closely with nursing students in St. George, Grenada to provide education, healthcare, and outreach to a largely underserved and low income population including:

  1. Develop and deliver continuing education seminars based on evidence-based practice.
  2. Complete clinical hours in a variety of community settings, e.g. Planned Parenthood, St. George's Hospital, St. George's community clinic, and conduct community outreach and health teaching.
  3. Develop, plan, and deliver a health fair for a low income community on a remote island.
