“Providing international learning opportunities for our students is part of the College’s commitment to student success and satisfaction,” says College of the Rockies Manager of International Projects, Kerry Brinkert. “By having travelled to Kenya to participate in the MAISHA project, our students have become more globally-minded.  This experience and the cross-cultural competencies our students have acquired will contribute to their success as nurses in an increasingly interconnected world.”
