"The trip to The Dominican Republic opened my eyes so much. It was truly a life changing experience that I will never forget. Not only were we taught so many aspects of their healthcare, but we were able to be hands-on in local communities. It was such an honor to be accepted by the people with such open arms as they allowed us to be immersed in their culture and healthcare system. The amount of knowledge gained from this trip expanded on the textbook information that has been given to me during my time in the nursing program. I feel grateful to be able to be part of such an impactful trip."
