Collaboration between nursing programs at an international university and a state university assisted undergraduate nursing students with nursing research design and increased awareness of global health. Baccalaureate nursing students used classroom and online activities and group components to develop research projects comparing the US and Irish Health Care Systems. Students were immersed into both health care systems through classroom and health care experiences in both countries. This experiential learning course met student learning objectives and reinforced global health perspectives. An overview of this pilot strategy for innovative education is discussed.
