Does anyone know of any NP programs that have sections of the program available in a study abroad format? Or offer anything with in international component?
I am looking to get my NP and would love to do something that involves travel.

I know of a colleague who attended an FNP program (UCLA) where they spent clinicals in an out-patient facility in Mexico. It is not part of the curriculum but more of an elective rotation as part of a medical mission. I would suppose there are other programs that will have similar opportunities especially by offering free services in developing countries.

The insurance issues would be tremendous. However, many schools might let you do clinicals on US soil, which includes US Embassies and military bases. I did some at Navy hospital on Marine base in Okinawa.

Loyola University Chicago has a yearly mission to Belize. I don't think it is for credit but the care provided in their clinic counts towards your clinical requirement.

NYU offers mini semesters (usually during breaks between traditional semesters) abroad. They are theory classes like "Issues and Trends" where no clinical component is required. I know for sure Buenos Aires and Abu Dabai (sp?) are options, there may be more but I'm not sure.
