Abstract

As society becomes increasingly culturally diverse, preparing nursing students to become culturally competent practitioners has become more critical. The authors share one school's experience with the development and implementation of a cross-cultural, international, service-learning experience. Discussion will include the development of an elective nursing course with cross-cultural content and the implementation of an international service-learning trip to Quito, Ecuador.
