Hello! My name is Eileen and I am a second-semester junior nursing student. I am so unbelievably excited for this trip and grateful to have been given the chance to go on it. In nursing school, while I have been taught about the cultural considerations that must be intertwined into healthcare, I have never really had the chance to provide care to any of the cultures I have been taught about. I think that going to Belize and providing healthcare to the people there is going to prove to be an eye-opening and very unique educational experience. For that reason I am so thankful for all of the people who have supported our group so far, and the people who will support us in the future. This trip is going to be very invaluable to all of us and our nursing careers. I CAN'T WAIT! :D

It is and was one of my personal goals in my new role as a nurse educator, to provide students with any opportunity that will promote growth in health care awareness, growth in what it means to be a nurse and personal growth. I believe that serving others provides personal growth, develops an awareness of health care needs and defines each individual in nursing.
Being able to travel with nursing students to areas of need in health care will provide this opportunity of growth both personal as more importantly as a nurse. I am so privileged to be working with such wonderful nursing students. If you can support these nursing students, small or big, you will be part of an amazing journey. Everyone at some points needs the special care of a nurse.
