Bridie completed a nursing placement at Suan Prung Psychiatric Hospital.
“Hi. My name is Bridie and in September 2013 I was lucky enough to go to Thailand with Gap Medics on a nursing placement. I believe my time overseas helped me to not only gain extensive experience in the field of mental health nursing but taught me a lot about life in general!
During my time in Thailand, I was able to witness how different cultures perceive and treat mental health patients. This in itself was an eye-opening experience. It was also amazing working with the healthcare professionals in the hospital and interacting with patients every day.
I have now finished university and I am a qualified mental health nurse. The amazing thing is that every time I’ve been for a job interview, I’ve been asked about my placement in Thailand and what it was like. I think that having something like Gap Medics on your CV really stands out and shows that you are organised, productive and passionate about a career in healthcare.
I had an amazing time abroad and met some incredible people who I still keep in touch with today. I would do it all again if I could and I would recommend anyone studying nursing to do the same!”
