Cherokee Nation Internship

As a function of a partnership between UTC and the Eastern Band of Cherokee, the Cherokee nation invited UTC students from across academic disciplines to participate in a summer internship on their reservation. The internship provided an immersion experience for four senior baccalaureate nursing students and took place May 5-23 this past summer. The goals of the internship were to raise cultural consciousness, meet the needs of the Cherokee community, and meet the academic needs of the intern participants. Nursing students returned with a stronger appreciation for the role of context and culture in health. It is hoped the internship will be an annual event.
