The perceptions of Master of Science in Nursing/Master of Public Health graduate students regarding a clinical study-abroad program were explored within the context of learning outcomes based on the cultural competency model. The growing globalization of public healthcare nursing creates advantages and challenges to the learning immersion of graduate students. In order to understand other countries' public health nursing practices, it is important to conduct clinical study-abroad programs to assimilate experiences that will create sensitivity and respect for the healthcare practices and cultural values of other countries. The insight of graduate students in the program will bridge the gap with respect to cultural competency, education, and personal and professional growth. These perceptions are tangible when actual clinical exposure is obtained and objective goals are met.
