Undergraduate Programs






The College of Nursing currently offers two nursing specific study abroad programs. Students are encouraged to notify their advisor freshmen year if they are interested in studying abroad.  There are a limited number of spots available for each program, so students must apply.  For applications requirements students may look on the individual program page through the Office of International Education www.marquette.edu/abroad/

The study abroad advisor for all nursing specific programs is Jessica Lothman, Jessica.lothman@marquette.edu

University College-Dublin is the largest university in Ireland and a vibrant, modern institution of more than 25,000 students. Situated on a spacious campus about three miles from downtown Dublin, UCD is a supportive and stimulating environment that promises intellectual and personal development. Marquette nursing students are integrated into the UCD School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health Systems, where they take 12-16 credits in a number of convenient areas.

Nursing students can study abroad in Dublin, Ireland their spring semester junior year or participate in a summer program at University College- Dublin.  Applications are due February 1st of spring semester sophomore year for the semester program; summer program applications are due March 1st.

Students studying abroad in Dublin for the spring semester take the courses that are equivalent to NURS 3201, NURS 3800, and NURS 3600, as well as one or two of the following electives: Nurs/Heal, Hist UCCS, LPA UCCS or a general elective. Students will work with their academic adviser on course planning.  Students participating in the semester program must return to Marquette for the summer session (approximately 6 weeks), to complete NURS 3964, Family and Community Centered Nursing Clinical. 


On this program, nursing students have the unique opportunity to complete their family and community centered clinical, NURS 3964, experience in Piura, Peru.  This month-long program focuses on community health nursing at Sacramento Santisimo, a Catholic parish in Piura.

Sacramento Santisimo parish has a well-trained nursing staff and an excellent health clinic including a surgical suite for visiting medical teams from the US. If the medical teams are visiting, students have the opportunity to assist in the pre/post-surgical areas. In addition, students are able to work in the parish clinic with staff nurses who monitor pregnant women and/or a general clinic. However, students spend most of their time with the "poorest of the poor" in the surrounding villages. Many students find that home visits and teaching the village women are their favorite experiences. Students adapt quickly to working in homes with bamboo walls, corrugated tin roofs and dirt floors with minimal resources. In addition, students have the opportunity to work in a parish-operated hospice, teach health-related programs to school children, work in an emergency room with Peruvian physicians and nurses, and assist in a nursing home.

Nursing students can study abroad in Piura, Peru the summer after their junior year.  Applications are due February 1st of spring semester sophomore year.
