International study tours: what do our students and staff think?

Find out what happens on our international study tours and hear first-hand what our students and staff enjoy most about the experience.

Nursing was never about a piece of paper, or just a career. It was a way of living that I was passionate about, especially how you could impact communities. Working in both big cities like Manila, and small villages on surrounding islands, opened up possibilities to empower children, families, university students and the elderly alike.
