Abstract

Nursing educators need to adapt to meet students in new technological spaces and in the increasingly global environment. This article provides background on blogging as an educational tool and the use of a blogging assignment for evaluation of course objectives in an international graduate nursing course. The blog is a part of a study-abroad experience in Kenya, where graduate nursing students learn about Kenyan culture and work in the health care system.
