NYU Meyers is excited to offer two courses in Abu Dhabi during January 2024!

Both courses will analyze health care system issues and trends globally, and explore factors that influence nursing practice. They will specifically look through a comparative health system lens at these issues in both the United States and the United Arab Emirates. The courses will be largely experiential-learning-based with daily field visits in and around the UAE. Field visits include: private and public hospitals, clinics, nursing colleges, ministry of health nursing officials, etc.

Course Details

When: January 5 - January 16, 2024 (2 days of travel, 10 nights and 9 full days)
Where: Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
Cost: Students will be responsible for tuition costs of a 3-credit hour course + other additional travel-related / student fee costs.
How: Applications will open in late September, but start talking to your advisors now, if you have any questions as to how courses can count towards your degree progression.


Course Options

Undergraduate Course: Only students in their nursing sequence are eligible to apply for the Comparative Health Systems course. This is an elective course that counts towards your degree credits.
