Value of Clinical Experience - National vs. International

Postby dcdrhey » 26 Jul 2014, 16:27

Currently, I am studying to be a registered nurse in Canada. One day I decided to compare programs across Canadian post-secondary institutions that would result in a Bachelor of Nursing (BScN.BN).
I noticed that unlike the school I am attending, some students have the option of going abroad in their last or second last clinical placement. In comparison, I may do this outside of school by applying to external initiatives. From what I have read, many have stated that this is an amazing opportunity. I just wanted to get the opinions of individuals' clinical experience who have tried going abroad or even the opinions of those who had clinical experience in their own respective countries. Let's compare and contrast!
Obsessively passionate about advocacy and participation! Intrigued by human development and the nature of individuals is what drives me.
