British versus German school system and nurse education

World International

Published

Hi guys,

my name is Karsten Hartdegen and I´m writing to you because I´m looking for contact to German interested students from Great Britain who want to exchange ideas, thoughts and more of their country and culture.

I´m 40 years old, married and have two kids (2 and 4 years). I´m head of a school training nurses (tied to a hospital) and hope to get a lot of informations of the British school and education system, ecspecially in terms of nurse education.

So, can you help me?

Of course too I want to make my English better on this way, maybe someone want to learn a bit German!

Thank you a lot for your interest.

With kind regards

Karsten Hartdegen

Hi Karsten,

I'm Judith. I'm not from UK but I am interested in learning nursing issues from your country.

I live in Illinois, USA. I am in graduate school this semester. I work at Abbott Laboratories as a Quality Systems Coordinator.

If you're interested with American Nursing education system, I can help you.

How about it?
