RN to BSN International Service Learning Program

Nursing student abroad"I highly recommend anyone to experience this lifetime opportunity. It broadens one’s views of the world and allows us to realize that our current issues are not as significant as other people in the world experience. This opportunity has driven me to focus on the social and health disparities that other countries, as well as mine face."

In addition to your online course work, you will complete your clinical hours through a service-learning project in your last course: Integrated Experiential Learning.

Working with Linfield’s service learning coordinator, you will plan and complete your service learning project, developing a health-related program for a vulnerable population in your local community – or in an international location.

Our international service learning partners

You will have the opportunity to choose among several different programs and countries for a one to three week international service learning experience. 

We work with reputable organizations to assist us in planning these experiences:

You may also propose another program to be considered. It must be a new experience, not something you have done before.


You are responsible for all program and travel costs. Costs will vary depending on the program of choice and its duration.
