‘zooming’ to nursing students in kosovo
An invitation to talk about my nursing career in Australia, & my role as an RFDS flight nurse
I was invited by a former university colleague to speak to the third year nursing students at the University of Pristina, in Kosovo.
There were approx 30 students online and I spoke about my career as a Registered Nurse and my time as a Flight Nurse with the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS).
The students had no idea of what the RFDS does; Kosovo can take approx 1 hour to cross by car so there is no need for an aero-medical retrieval service (although it is a very mountainous region so maybe they have a helicopter for rescuing climbers!?)
The students were asking lots of questions about nursing in Australia, and also how we are coping with COVID-19.
Zoom wasn’t as interactive as I had hoped, but it was a real pleasure to speak with these students; maybe one day we might meet!
See the YouTube video below of my ‘claim to fame’ – a video I made about my role as a Flight Nurse with the RFDS.
