I recently started an NP program and I am taking a class this summer that requires us to buddy up with an RN from a different country. I live in the U.S., and the purpose of this project is to get to know an RN and talk about how different/similar nursing is in both areas. Also included in this project are a set of questions that I will be emailing. It's really a project to get to know the person as well as their profession.
Questions would be things like: what family life in that country is like, details of educational background, future plans, how nurses are treated, major nursing issues in that country, etc.
I think this project is very cool, and I think it will be very interesting to see the information I get back. The only catch is, my email buddy must have either a lot of experience or should have a master's degree or higher. I am really hoping that someone out there can help me out. I am very excited to meet an RN from another country! :spin: (even if just through E-mail) I am looking forward to learning as much as I can from YOU!!
Thanks a million everyone, have a happy day!
