My Experience Abroad:

Studying abroad in Brisbane, Australia was one of the most unique ways I could have spent my fall semester as a nursing student. In the fall semester of junior year, the nursing curriculum usually has us completing community placements in Philadelphia. In Brisbane, we worked at an aged care facility twice a week. There, I helped provide care for elderly patients with different kinds of chronic illnesses, but mainly dementia.  As part of our Australian academic plan of study, my favorite course was "Working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities" where we learned about the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and what nurses can do to narrow the health inequity gap.

Other Highlights:

  • Campervanning in Tasmania and in the Blue Mountains, Sydney

  • Skydiving over the Gold Coast

  • Competing in a university basketball tournament
