University of Maine Nursing International (UMNI)
Our purpose is to offer University of Maine nursing students an international experience that focuses on global health. Nursing students who are interested in enhancing their understanding of global health issues as well as providing humanitarian health care related assistance to an underserved population, will have the opportunity to participate in an international experience. This will be a professional and individual growth experience, which will improve the lives of families in areas where human welfare is underserved as well as further our understanding of global health. Serving others will develop an awareness of health care needs, personal growth, and will define each individual within the nursing profession.
