Successful Strategies in Providing International Short-Term Rural Clinical Placements
Penman, Joy
Education in Rural Australia, v16 n2 p61-68 2006
Since 2005, seven graduating nursing students from the University of Worcester have visited Whyalla, a regional city in South Australia, to undertake a two-week rural clinical placement. Following the placements, surveys were conducted to determine the impact of the experience. Findings suggested that the majority thought that international rural clinical placements were profitable and should continue. Much learning transpired but the most significant was the opportunity for students to manage and examine their own professional practice. (Contains 3 tables.)
