Guatemala (MSN only)

This experience is only for MSN students. FPB collaborates with Refuge International on this project. Our MSN students go with Refuge International to Guatemala to help in a remote area where there is no access to healthcare. There are two trips each year (one in August and one in October) based on the level of interest. Our students are accompanied by a preceptor and they see between 900 to 1,200 patients during one week. This experience has been very popular. Acceptance is based on qualifications, recommendation from the MSN program director and when the application is made.

Please contact Latina Brooks, MSN Program Director, using for more information on this opportunity.
