Nursing Students Without Borders (NSWB) is a student run organization committed to expanding the global perspective of the individual nursing student. By developing cultural awareness, leadership skills, and innovation in resource-poor settings, nursing students will become better prepared both personally and professionally to provide culturally competent health care within our increasing global society.
NSWB strives to provide information on international service learning opportunities for OHSU students. We believe that facilitating international clinical and academic opportunities will increase student awareness of the challenges facing underserved global communities, thereby inspiring students to work toward encouraging a healthier future for all people around the globe. NSWB promotes global health education, advocacy, and service, and strongly believes that optimal health is an essential human right.
