Visit to Australia first for Balinese student nurses

Media release

Nursing students from Bali are visiting Australia for the first time as part of an exchange program with Curtin University.

The Balinese nursing students from the Sekolah Tinggi IImu Kesehatan (STIKES) School of Nursing will spend three weeks at Curtin’s School of Nursing and Midwifery as part of a program designed to expand students’ awareness of global health and nursing trends.

Mr Alan Tulloch, Director of International and Professional Education in the School of Nursing and Midwifery, said the group of 10 nursing students arrived on Sunday 13 March.

“This is the first time the Balinese nurse students have visited us and we are looking forward to working closely with them over the next few weeks,” Mr Tulloch said.

“They will work alongside Curtin’s nursing students, visiting hospitals and healthcare facilities in WA.

“Through this experience they will learn about Australia’s approach to healthcare and nursing and gain an insight to student life at Curtin.

“These collaborative experiences will help to broaden the outlook of the students from both continents, preparing them for nursing in the global context.”
