Student Nursing Trip to Africa

I am excited to announce that I have the amazing opportunity to study abroad in Africa this coming June of 2018! The Fitchburg State University's department of Nursing is taking a group of 12 Nursing Students on this trip to provide an incredible experience to recieve full credit for our senior Community Health Nursing Course. We will be studying specifically in Accra and Cape Coast, Ghana which is located in West Africa’s Gulf of Guinea. Here we will be studying clinically at local hospitals and in the community. We will be completely immeresed in this culture where we will be educating the people of Ghana on health issues and caring for those in need.  
This study abroad trip to Ghana, Africa will allow my classmates and I to not only get a full education on this course, but to care for people and learn about their culture outside the classroom while we are there for two weeks.
I have always wanted to study abroad, but because there is a lot to learn in our four year Bachelor of Science Nursing Program, it is not heard of often. Fitchburg State University is offering this opportunity, and I am very grateful to be a part of it!

*I am raising money for this trip and collecting medical supplies to bring over for those to keep. Please help donate to this amazing opportunity and help those in need over in Africa. Any and all donations help and are extremely appreciated!

Thank you,
Amanda Woods
