Students’ Study Abroad Experiences

Aoi Niiro What I Learned from My Two Experiences.
I volunteered to host a Chiang Mai student and joined the study abroad program at Chiang Mai University. Living together for a week as a host volunteer, I felt the difference in our cultures and ways of thinking. In the study abroad program, I visited the hospital, a health center, and a childcare center attached to the university. There I learned about the nursing care methods specific to Thailand, as well as the differences in our ways of thinking about care. I want to make use of this valuable study to become the kind of person who can understand and cooperate with others in this modern age of internationalization.

Akari Tokumine What I Gained From My Homestay in America
I joined the two-week San Jose study abroad program. Through my homestay, I experienced the daily lives of Americans and realized the differences in our lifestyles and customs. I was also able to meet with a variety of people through site visits to an elderly care facility for Japanese Americans and a local high school. I had a chance to learn about American nursing by visiting hospitals and interacting with nursing students. I want to apply this valuable study to my nursing practice in the future.
