Students’ Study Abroad Experiences
Chiang Mai study abroad program & Chiang Mai student hosting program participan
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.
What I Learned From My Two Experiences
San Jose study abroad program participant
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.
What I Gained From My Homestay in America
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.
