Sara completed a pre-nursing program at Pula General Hospital.
“Ever since I was a child I’ve had a strong desire to work within the nursing field but throughout my school years I never got the opportunity to experience it first-hand.
With this in mind, I decided to book a trip with Gap Medics and spend two weeks shadowing nurses in Croatia to see if I was ready to head down the nursing career path.
From day one my nursing mentors were so enthusiastic and eager to teach me everything they could. They gave me opportunities that I would never have received in my hometown.
From learning how to do a physical check on a newborn baby to witnessing minor surgeries and even getting to help put a cast on a broken leg, my pre-nursing internship program was honestly a life-changing experience. Even learning the simple things like how to take blood pressure manually, conduct an ECG and write-up patient charts gave me more confidence heading into university.
The trip also provided me with valuable insight into what it takes to become a nurse and confirmed my aspirations to study the profession.
I would highly recommend Gap Medics to anyone thinking of working in the medical field.”
