Project aim

I am going to go to Dumaguete for one month in the hope to develop my skills, for my future career as a Children's Nurse.

About the project

 I would like to undertake an elective abroad to Dumaguete in the Philippines for four weeks. This rare opportunity to practice nursing in a developing country is a chance I do not want to pass.

 I would get the opportunity to practice alongside experienced health care professionals in the hospital and in the community; experiencing a range of cases that I would never see in the UK. Nursing in the Philippines might be one of the most important things I ever do to learn new and significant skills, that will promote my future career as a children's nurse. I want to be abe to deliver the 6C's of Nursing (Care, Compassion, Competence, Commincation, Courage and Commitment) to a country with a different culture.

 Philippines is a devloping country with high patient numbers and limited resources. I would like to learn hospital survival skills in an environment with limited access to modern equipment, which is a very different learning environment to the one I am used to in the UK. This varying setting will help me think on my feet and learn to use resources effectively. I woud also like to acquire knowledge about the main conditions the children suffer from in Dumaguete, Philippines and what medications the medical staff use to treat these illnesses, as I am sure some will be very different to what I have come accross so far, from my training in the UK. 

 I am taking part in the elective programme, with the organisation Work The World (www.worktheworld.co.uk). I have to raise money to fund all travel expenses, accommodation and any resources I would like to take with me.

 Thank you very much for reading, any donations would be gratefully received. Thank you all for your support.
