Global Education and Career Development Abroad (GlobalEd) has been functioning since 2009 as an educational institution with a special focus on the development of skill sets within the academic discipline of our program participants. GlobalEd designs Career Path Programs by combining the study abroad experience with language learning, leadership training and internships. We offer credit and non-credit options to cater to both undergraduate students and recent graduates.



The purpose of this program is to provide students pursing a degree in nursing to expand their cultural view of how health care services are provided in other cultures. This program is designed to enhance your candidacy for post-graduate studies as you will increase your understanding of how Spain prepares its students for a career in nursing, the academic requirements and the roles nurses play in the health care sectors.


Program participants will live with a Spanish family and will receive a full meal plan. All students will live in a single room but will most likely share the family with another student under our buddy system. All placements typically have WIFI access and include reasonable use of utilities. Housing assignments are communicated prior to arrival in the form of a housing sheet and are designed to match the needs and expectations of each program participant. The detailed information in our housing sheets describes the housing accommodation, amenities, occupants, location, description of the neighborhood and a distance chart to local points of interest.
