IPER Brown Bag Lunch (Faculty, Students and Professional Staff)

The purpose of this brown bag lunch is to describe a ten-year collaborative relationship between CHNP and Akal College of Nursing, Eternal University, situated in the mid-range of the Himalayas. Our relationship was originally developed by Drs. Derstine and McHugh at the invitation of the Eternal University leadership who were interested in professional development for their nursing faculty. Our collaboration has since grown to include Drexel faculty teaching CNHP undergraduate and graduate students, joint oversight with the Akal faculty of their graduate student nursing research, Global Classrooms joining Drexel and Akal nursing students and faculty in live (zoom) sessions, and the early stages of community-based research. In conjunction with the Office of International Programs we will be offering a two-week intensive course abroad for CNHP students beginning in the fall 2019.

As of October 2018, we have been asked by the leadership of Eternal University as well as Drexel’s Office of International Programs to consider ways that we can expand our program to include student / faculty exchange between both universities as well as the potential for interprofessional – interdisciplinary teams. Our goal for this brown bag is to describe our program to date and discuss faculty / student interest in expanding our program into Interprofessional Education.
