Alex Berland, Advisor on Health Sciences at IUBAT for the BScN program, has recently published an article about the Bangladesh Health Project entitled, A ‘Do-It-Yourself’ Approach to International Nursing Education. Featured in the October 2017 edition of the American Journal of Nursing, this article provides a practical framework for social entrepreneurs who wish to develop similar volunteer projects. His advice is especially pragmatic, relevant and drawn from extensive experience, and amongst his suggestions: conduct research prior to committing to an endeavour and be aware of the possibility of relying heavily on your own resources. With some hope, the Bangladesh Health Project may inspire similar initiatives elsewhere!
