Ten 3rd year Bachelor of Nursing students have recently returned from a study tour in Japan. They attended the Hyogo University of Health Sciences and learnt about the differences in health care in Japan and Australia. They were fortunate to have the opportunity of staying with host families which enabled them to learn about Japanese culture as well. All the students thoroughly enjoyed their time in Hyogo with the staff of Hyogo University being so welcoming to our students.
