Pursuing overseas intern in the healthcare industry is learning the difference between the healthcare system of your country and theirs. In the hospital I worked in, I was given the chance to hop between different sub departments in the Pharmacy department to learn and complete the usual work routine. Although this was a wholesome experience it would have been better if I could speak Vietnamese, their local language, as this would enable me to perform more tasks such as administrative work or communicating with patients.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?

My memorable nursing internship in Vietnam

The Nursing Placement I had in Vietnam was exceptionally fulfilling, due to the support from my Nurses, Coordinator and Local Buddy. The on-site support I received was brilliant, every query I had was answered promptly and professionally and the service was everything I could have asked for.
Besides observing, I was also able to use my skills as a nurse, from helping nurses with drug rounds, administering medications, injections and intravenous injections infusions, wound care and management of wounds. The techniques used are very similar to clinical skills I was taught in England, as it was very easy to adjust and get to work.
I think the most important things concerning my organization in my work environment was safety and that I enjoyed and seek all fulfillment in the placement. I appreciate SE Vietnam for providing a great service of support and the opportunity to meet wonderful people. I highly recommend this internship to anyone who is interested since it’s a great way of meeting new friends, experiencing new culture, food and language.

Useful guidelines to future career from Vietnam

The internship placement met my expectation and my local buddy was great. At the host organization, I was clear about the responsibilities & rules expected to accomplish & follow. I was very lucky to have caring supervisors and doctors who were very gracious and explained a lot of cases to me, so I was well equipped to perform the job at my best. This experience will definitely contribute a lot to my future career, I believe.
In general, my internship in Vietnam was great, though I wish to have had more planned trips from SE Vietnam.

A life-changing experience in Vietnam

My time here last summer was invaluable and unforgettable in every possible way. Undoubtedly, my nursing internship became a strong platform for my future, in both personal and professional development. More specifically, the life experience I learned, through adapting to another culture, traveling alone to beautiful places and having a sense of home here is something I’ll never forget. The people here touched my heart, and I’ll have these memories forever. I am still feeling so happy to have taken this step, visiting this beautiful country with its amazing people. The program inspired me a lot to always follow my dreams, no matter how big they are, and that I can do anything.
