"Coming to Barcelona and doing this program was one of the best decisions I have ever made. This program has opened my eyes to new and different cultures that I would have never known about if I hadn't come. The opportunities I had in this program were some that I would never have been able to experience otherwise and I am so grateful for that." – Sasha Arrendondo-De Lipski, Spring 2019

Barcelona Program Allows Nurses to Venture Abroad

Since Spring 2012, students have been able to stay in the nursing sequence while studying abroad for the semester through Illinois Wesleyan's Barcelona Program. 

Students at the School of Nursing also have the opportunity to take special travel courses during the University’s May Term to study Transcultural Health in Hawaii or liberal arts courses throughout the world.

This very popular course is open to any student with interest in healthcare and is taught by Illinois Wesleyan University School of Nursing Faculty who travel with students to Hawaii for three weeks. The focus is on the influence of historical, geographical, and cultural characteristics of care delivery on the island. Students develop a foundation of resources for meeting the basic needs of clients with varied cultural backgrounds. The islands of Oahu, Maui, and Hawaii are visited.
