Program Description:

Full NS 330 Group 

All in all, going to Nicaragua was one of the biggest highlights in my four years at Fairfield. I could not have thought
of a better way to wrap up my time as a student here and I am extremely thankful to everyone who made this trip
possible for me and the other 11 students who joined me. I believe that I am a better person and that I will be a
better nurse because of this experience.
