Ruth's Erasmus Adventure 2015!
Earlier this year I was selected as a candidate for the UWS Erasmus Exchange placement and in February I will be hitting the frosty plains of Finland! This is a huge opportunity as it will give me insight into how other healthcare services work in the EU, develop my own nursing skills and have a life changing experience. Currently, Finland is 31st in the world rankings for healthcare and it'll be a valuable experince for me to nurse people with a different range of illnesses and management processes compared to those in the UK.
As you can appreciate, there are some financial considerations to be made such as accommodation fees and living costs. I will recieve a small bursary from the British Council, but I am asking YOU lovely people to consider donating to my cause! I would be willing to come and talk to a group you are involved in (even your own home if you're interested!) about my experiences if that applies to you, but to ensure I can make the most of this experience, I really need all the help I can get!
If you'd like more information, don't hesitate to contact me, and thank you for visiting my page.
