Hey boys and girls, thank you for taking your time to visit my page, it means a great deal.
I am currently training to become a paediatric (children's) nurse. I am going into my third year, and as part of my training i get the opportunity to broaden my nursing experience by taking an elective placement abroad, this is a great chance for me as I have been undertaking my previous placements in UK hospitals, so by having this experience i will gain greater knowledge of nursing and other cultures.
I am fortunate enough to be travelling to Nepal (Kathmandu). This placement involves me coming out of my comfort zone of a typical NHS hospital and putting myself in situations I am not accustomed to. I will be volunteering in various parts of the hospital such as mental health, obstetrics and paediatrics. It is in these departments where i will come face to face with unusual medical conditions, diverse cultural attitudes and unfamiliar clinical practises.
I will be undertaking this placement under the guidance of a company called 'WORK THE WORLD' who ensure I am supported and nurtured when on placement.
This incredible journey is self funded, I am kindly asking for donations, every little helps. Any contributions will help pay for this fantastic opportunity. All donations received will go towards my flights, visa, vaccinations and insurance costs and the placement as a whole which would come to a total of £2500.
Thank you so much of taking your time to read this page and for any contributions, as I said before, any donations both big or small will mean a great deal.
