As society becomes increasingly culturally diverse, preparing nursing students to become culturally competent practitioners has become more critical. The authors share one school's experience with the development and implementation of a cross-cultural, international, service-learning experience. Discussion will include the development of an elective nursing course with cross-cultural content and the implementation of an international service-learning trip to Quito, Ecuador.
