This program is designed to provide scholars with an opportunity to engage in research and observation at the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing (NHWSN) at Emory University.
The Lillian Carter Center hosts approximately 2-6 international visitors annually. In recent years we have had visitors from China, Nigeria, South Korea, and brussels. Members of the Visiting Scholar Program are welcome to use the facilities and resources of the Nursing School in order to pursue their individual research projects. They may observe one course per semester, as long as space is available in the course selected and the professor gives permission for an observer. Visiting Scholar applicants are NOT to write directly to faculty members. Appropriate faculty members will be contacted if and when an invitation is issued to the applicant.
All visitors will have access to the Emory Library and the Internet and will receive training in the resources of the library and the School’s technology. Most visitors bring their own laptops. Please visit the Resources portion of the Nursing School website for computer specifications; this will ensure that your laptop will function within the Nursing School computing community during your visit. Secretarial support cannot be offered to visitors.
