These include the Red Cross Museum, the Florence Nightingale Museum, a NHS Hospital, and the Queens Nursing Institute.
You will be registered for the CONHP London course during either the Spring or Fall semester, depending on your academic track. You should consult with your major advisor to ascertain which courses will be most appropriate for your academic plan. In addition to the coursework that you will be doing while you are travelling, you will also have meetings on campus before the trip. These meetings will provide an opportunity to better prepare for all of the things that you will experience during your travel component.

Emphasis will be on respect for human and environmental diversity and the impact on health, illness, and the provision of nursing care.
You will stay in shared rooms in comfortable hotels during your stay in London.

. The program fee includes airfare, accommodation, local transportation, breakfast each day, some dinners, museum visits, administrative fees, and program-sponsored excursions.

The program fee does not include additional meals, supplies, personal expenses, and any passport and visa fees.
Program fees are based on costs of the prior year, as well as projections for the current and coming years. Inflation and fluctuating exchange rates make it difficult to state a fixed cost. Lewis University, therefore, reserves the right to adjust program fees and the right to cancel or alter programs and courses.
To be eligible, you must be a Lewis student with at least a 2.75 GPA who will be a Jr 1 or Jr 2 in the Fall 2018 semester. There are no language prerequisites for this program..
