Villanova Nursing Without Borders (NWB) is an on-campus organization that addresses social injustices surrounding healthcare. Started in 2011 by several nursing students, Villanova NWB serves as a foundation from which Villanova students can tackle injustices within the healthcare system. At the heart of NWB is a desire to move beyond weekly service opportunities and effect lasting change by creating sustainable partnerships with community organizations, both locally and internationally.
Believed to be the only group of its kind based in a nursing school, it is envisioned as a group that focuses on sustainable projects in the community and promoting social justice through the following pillars:
- local projects
- international projects
