Continuing Education in Italy


Event date: 5/16/2018 12:00 AM - 6/3/2018 12:00 AM Export event

As a RN seeking continuing education hours, you are invited to apply for a continuing education experience in Arezzo, Italy. The experience, scheduled for May 16-June 3, 2018, and is sponsored by the OUHSC Fran and Earl Ziegler College of Nursing. CE offerings will give RNs the opportunity to explore the cultural and historical background of Italian women and families across the lifespan. The Arezzo experience provides an opportunity to compare Italian and American health care systems while interacting with current interprofessional students from OUHSC.  

Up to 25 outstanding health professions students and CE participants will:

•         Meet with successful Italian nurse & healthcare leaders (Midwife, pediatrician, nurses, etc.)

•         Examine how a family-centered social service and healthcare enterprise is maintained to achieve outcomes.

•         Create valuable insight regarding the connection between European culture and the health care delivery system.

•         Enjoy a memorable once-in-a-lifetime trip to Italy.

Trip Requirements: US Passport, Hepatitis A vaccination verification

Cost: $2900 + roundtrip airfare to Italy (~$1500-1800)

           (Significant others not needing CE may join a CE participant for $2700 + roundtrip airfare

             to Italy)


Though this is an educational experience, we’ll have plenty of fun, too!  Students will enjoy seeing Italian landmarks such as the Academia, the Siena Duomo, the Vatican museums, Roman Coliseum and Forum, and the Sistine Chapel.
