Nursing students participate in exchange program

Great Wall of China

Through IUSONs strategic partnership with Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou, China, students from both schools travel across the Pacific Ocean to study for one month. This exchange program provides classroom, lab, and clinical experiences so students develop a greater understanding of nursing and the healthcare system of the other country. In addition, students visit many local cultural, sporting, and social venues and develop rich personal relationships. IUSON students also travel to Xi'an where they visit the Terracotta Warriors and Horse, one of the most significant archeological excavation of the 20th century and then onto Beijing and a walk on the Great Wall.
