    The Nursing Placement I had in Vietnam was exceptionally fulfilling, including the support from my Nurses, Coordinator and Local Buddy. All of whom made me feel very welcomed during the time I was here. The on-site support I received was brilliant, every query I had was answered promptly and professionally and the service was everything I could have asked for.
    Besides observing, I was also able to use my skills as a nurse, from helping nurses with drug rounds, administering medications, injections and intravenous injections infusions, wound care and management of wounds. The techniques used are very similar to clinical skills I was taught in England, as it was very easy to adjust and get to work.
    I think the most important things concerning my organization in my work environment was safety and that I enjoyed and seek all fulfillment in the placement. I appreciate SE Vietnam for providing a great service of support and the opportunity to meet wonderful people. I highly recommend this internship to anyone who is interested since it’s a great way of meeting new friends, experiencing new culture, food and language.

    My time there last summer was so amazing that I could hardly put my emotions into words. I had a life-changing and invaluable experience, even more than I had expected. I learned so much from my nursing internship in Vietnam that will help me very much in my future. Moreover, the life experience I learned, through adapting to another culture, traveling alone to beautiful places and having a sense of home here is something I’ll never forget. The people here left such deep footprints in my heart that I'll remember for my whole life.
    Vietnam, the country and people are beautiful, and I am so happy I came here. It inspired me to always follow my dreams, no matter how big they are, and that I can do anything.
