News, Events and GHP

Global Health Perspectives LogoGlobal Health Perspective (GHP) is a cross-cultural, inclusive outreach program for undergraduate students that is focused on student development in global health settings in Denver and around the world.

GHP combines classroom training with in-field service-learning internships and is integrated throughout the Denver College of Nursing curriculum path. Students are invited to participate in GHP from their first quarter of enrollment, through their coursework and even as DCN alumni.

Student membership in GHP requires attendance at global development symposiums on and off campus and service learning volunteer hours each quarter at many nonprofit organizations in the Denver metro area. After successful completion of GHP membership for a minimum of two quarters and completion of Advanced Medical/Surgical nursing courses, students are eligible to apply for a GHP Service Learning Internship.

DCN faculty members mentor and precept GHP students in both domestic and international internship locations. Upon successful completion of GHP internships students earn clinical credit for their work and, most importantly, gain the tools and experiences to broaden their perspectives in global health care.

The Colorado Nurses Association held the eighteenth annual dinner at Scottish Rite Masonic Temple in Denver on January 30th. There were over 20 DCN students, from quarter one up to quarter seven, in attendance.  This was the largest number of students in attendance from state approved ADN or BSN programs. The focus of the night was the Enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact and the anticipated positive impact it will have on the Denver healthcare community.  Throughout the dinner current Colorado Legislators introduced upcoming bills relevant to the healthcare community.  DCN students were able to learn about upcoming opportunities, as wells as network within a large framework of seasoned healthcare veterans in attendance.

CNA supports and encourages student participation through scholarships and mentorships.  For more information about events, scholarships, and other opportunities please visit their website: www.coloradonurses.org.  Please join us next year for an informative, enjoyable dinner with legislators and industry experts!
