Students take nursing to new heights

A pair of Deakin Warrnambool nursing students are preparing for a culture shock when they take on the world’s tallest mountain range.

Second year students Sarah McCall and Audrey Lenehan will begin a 17-night study tour of the Himalayas at the weekend and they’re hoping the experience will be life-changing.

“I think it’s a fantastic cultural experience,” said Ms Lenehan. “I’ve never had the opportunity to visit that part of the world. It’s a tick on the bucket list, we’re so lucky to have these doors opened.”

The School of Nursing and Midwifery tour aims to help students enhance their understanding of cross-cultural health and nursing care.

“I’m interested in staying in a Buddhist country and seeing their way of life.” Ms McCall said.
