Students invited to study health care in Ireland

Students who are interested in Salve Regina’s summer study abroad program in County Donegal, Ireland are invited to an information session scheduled for 12:15 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 8 in the O’Hare Academic Center, Room 106.

Led by Jacqueline Janicki, lecturer in the Department of Nursing, the program offers students the opportunity to compare and contrast nursing education and the delivery of health care in Ireland, Northern Ireland and the United States, and to apply theoretical concepts of health care policy and nursing in an international setting.

The program fulfills the service learning requirement for nursing majors and serves as a free elective for all other majors. Suggested topics for exploration may include palliative care, children’s bereavement, women’s health, mental health, cancer care and care of the aging.

The program fee is $4,100, which includes round-trip airfare from Boston, tuition for three credits, airport transfers, accommodations in Ireland, two or three meals per day, official excursions and entrance fees, and international travel insurance. Lodging, meals and on-site logistics will be provided by the Inch House Irish Studies Center.
