On the first day of class, I can feel the heart of the school. The teacher waited for us in front of the convenient store nearby school and took us to the school. We have welcome reception with the Dean of the nursing department and the teachers. Each student and teacher separately introduced ourselves, let us know the teacher's expertise and let the teacher know the background of the students. Because of abnormal climate, temperatures is higher than usual, the teacher cares a lot about us. During the class and visiting, the school has arranged for the teachers for helping us to translate Japanese into English. We can ask question during class, and the teacher is willing to answer us, which is very helpful for learning. Each member in Osaka Medical College Hospital introduce us about medical in Japan including infection management and medical safety and the role and activities CNS (Certified Nurse Specialist). We also met the nurses who works in this hospital, they are very happy for sharing us the experience of working in the hospital.
In courses planning, the school let us to understand the population profiles and health issues of Japan. Osaka, maternal and child health, midwifery education system, community care, home nursing environments and care, nursing education in Japan, and long term care resources in Takatsuki. The two-week course at Osaka Medical College is very useful. In addition to the classroom courses, I also learned more about Japan’s long term care from the visits health care facility for older elderly and health promotion activity and home nursing care.
The school also arranges for us to communicate with the students of OMC in one class, share each other’s school and country culture. They took us to Osaka Castle and Osaka Museum of history, let us know more about this city . It’s a really memorable experience.
