For all nursing students at the undergraduate and graduate level, here's an opportunity to not only travel to Mexico and learn about the Mexican culture but also to have an opportunity to learn about the Mexican healthcare clinics at three different locations surrounding Ensenada, Mexico in order to provide healthcare to people who greatly need it. After three days of work the students will be able to enjoy a day of sightseeing and shopping at a Mexican market. Throughout the trip, students will stay at a camp in dorm and will eat authentic Mexican food. It is not only an opportunity to experience another culture but an opportunity to serve those in need.
