A Closing Look A new herald offers an enduring welcome. Not every nursing program offers its students an opportunity to observe clinical practice abroad. Through the interdisciplinary “Health and Healing in Comparative Perspective” May Term, Hope nursing students and others pursuing health-professions majors spend three weeks in Queretaro, Mexico, visiting a variety of public and private health care centers, such as the emergency room pictured above. The course’s name indicates one benefit of the experience—the opportunity to understand how the practices they’re learning are applied in another nation—but the three-week program doesn’t end its lessons there. Saturdays, for example, are devoted to field trips to sites outside Queretaro. The students also live with host families throughout their stay, providing a deeper understanding of the community and its culture, and spend Sundays with the families, often accompanying them to worship services. Hope and the Autonomous University of Queretaro, whose Nursing School helps make the program possible, have exchanged students, faculty, and academic and cultural programs since 1996. The “Health and Healing” May Term began in 2010. Printed using soy-based inks. June 2012 August 2013 3
