East Tennessee State University has a variety of international travel opportunities for general education within its undergraduate study abroad program. Some opportunities even exist within specific degree programs. Despite the literature purporting the benefits acquired from clinical experience abroad, the College of Nursing has yet to incorporate an international component to its BSN curriculum. This study explores College of Nursing students' interest in participating in international clinical experiences and the perceived barriers for students who are willing to travel.
