International Student Visit Fall 2024 - Hamamatsu University, Japan:

Four nursing students and one faculty member from Japan will visit the UNMC College of Nursing in Omaha from September 30 to October 4, 2024. They have a number of activities planned, but we would like to engage with any interested students, faculty, and staff during the week of their visit. If you are interested in helping with the visit, please complete the survey below and we'll keep in touch as the preparations continue to evolve. Any specific questions can be emailed to Dr. Beam at
