Global Health


Join us as we make a difference in the world around us.


VUSN is committed to improve health in diverse populations and communities through interprofessional approaches to education and clinical practice which enhance the global healthcare workforce. Experience and understanding about people from diverse populations in the US and abroad enhances the quality of healthcare that can be provided in any location. There are opportunities at Vanderbilt University and outside the University to expose students to global health issues from an interprofessional approach. These opportunities are continually changing and expanding, but explore this site to see some examples of what is available to students at Vanderbilt University School of Nursing.



Second chance! For those of you who couldn't make the first info session, Deanna Pilkenton will be hosting another lunch hour presentation/ Q & A on the Nicaragua Global Health Elective. This elective course is an interprofessional partnership between the School of Nursing and School of Medicine. Evening classes are held in May-June, and the course culminates in a trip to Nicaragua August 1-9, 2015. Applications are being accepted now.
