Abstract

Theoretical perspectives and approaches to transcultural nursing have been developed and there are different options for teaching transcultural care. The opportunity for nursing students to gain healthcare experience in another country is one option. This article reports a study undertaken in Northern Ireland to evaluate outcomes of a 3-month international experience for undergraduate nursing students (n = 74) and to assess differences between the experiences in developed and developing countries. Data were collected by questionnaire. The findings indicate a high impact on students' international perspective and career development. Students' understanding of cultural and political issues within Northern Ireland was enhanced. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
