Students will explore Puerto Rico’s Health care system and its unique characteristics and challenges as a diverse US Island territory. Through collaboration with Puerto Rican nursing students and faculty, students will participate in bilingual community health education/outreach, and nursing workforce training in disaster preparation and response.
