Updated course eases the stress of leading medical mission trips

(INDIANAPOLIS) — Nurse faculty are frequently asked to lead a medical mission trip for students, often to a foreign country. Preparing for such a trip involves meticulous planning to meet the needs of the mission-focused population, as well as to ensure that the health and safety of the medical mission participants are met.
