My day in the clinic was extremely exciting because it was my first clinical experience in a hospital outside of the United States. My favorite part of this day was working in the Obstetrics and Gynecology department. I was able to assist with prenatal assessments and examinations with the help of the doctor. I believe that this experience will be valuable in my future as a Labor and Delivery nurse. My classmates and I also had the opportunity to work in the Emergency Area where we helped with assessments, wound care, and observed the doctor repair a laceration with stitches. This experience was different than my clinical rotations in the U.S. however these doctors were very resourceful and did a great job providing treatment with the staff and resources that they had.
