From Finland to Tanzania

A nursing adventure

About me…

Hello! Moi!

I am Joanne, a second, soon to be third year nursing student.  I am originally from England but have been living in Finland for about 8 years.

I am going for 3 months practical training to Tanzania (yay) so I will tell about my experiences before leaving home, being there in a whole new world and coming back to a (probably) cold Finland.   I will be doing one month pediatric nursing, one month surgical nursing and one month internal medicine nursing from mid-August to mid-November.

Many people have wondered why would I want to go so far from home and why not go to England? Well,  I want to see new places and have new adventures.  I want to use my practical training time in a way where I can experience different things, but also learn and build my skills as a nurse.

I decided to write a blog, mostly because I had never done it before, and also I thought it would be a fun way to keep my school, family, friends and whoever is interested up to date…….and my mum will know that I didn’t get lost.

Welcome to my blog 🙂
