Training nurses from the University of Suffolk have enjoyed a trip overseas learning about how the healthcare practice works in Asia.
Adult and child nursing students attended Keio University during their five-day expedition and met with students from Japan, Korea and China.
The Ipswich-based university has been welcoming learners from Japan for the past 15 years but this is the first time Suffolk students have travelled to Asia.
Child health nursing student, Beth Archer, 21 and from Stowmarket, said: “The main difference I realised was how much we are able to do when we are out on placement, we can do an awful lot compared to the Japanese students who can’t touch any medicine and really just have to watch the nurse.
“You don’t realise how much you know and have learnt until you are talking to someone about it, they were asking us lots of questions especially as they don’t specialise in children’s nursing.”
