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.


On Wednesday, November 14, 2018, the DCN LRC welcomed the 1 millionth recorded patron to enter the facility. At just past 11:00 AM, DCN Student Mr. Charles Osuchukwu walked into the LRC and was pleasantly surprised to find out he was this patron! The gift bag he received (contents pictured later) was generously provided by Dr. Cathy Maxwell, DCN President; Mr. Jeff Johnson, Director of Admissions; & Mr. Leif Madsen, the LRC Manager. Leif has managed the LRC since 2009 when he joined the DCN Team and is proud to share this milestone with his friends and colleagues in the DCN and EA (Education Affiliates) communities.
