An international service-learning program in a developing country that incorporates local, in-country preceptors offers a unique and valuable learning opportunity for US nursing students. Because of limited research related to the experiences of preceptors in international settings, exploring the experiences of these preceptors and their American nursing students makes a needed contribution to the literature and guides the development of international service-learning programs that meet the needs of both preceptors and students.
