Abstract

ABSTRACT: Cultural sensitivity and improved communication and assessment skills for undergraduate nursing students are the primary aims of a medical mission experience based on an innovative learning environment in a rural African village. Nursing faculty implement components of Irby's Conceptual Framework for Learning Environments to facilitate students' integration and understanding of didactic information and the holistic practice of nursing while decreasing students' dependence on technology.
