A study group of 22 nursing students from Tokai University Junior College of Nursing and Medical Technology visited Denmark from August 14-27. The purpose of the study tour was for the students to deepen their knowledge and understanding of education and nursing in Denmark, thereby enabling them to reflect on their own education and future in the nursing profession. With TUEC as their base the group spent the first week in the Copenhagen area learning about Danish health, welfare and education culture. For this purpose TUEC had arranged visits to a hospital, the Danish Nurses’ Organization, a care facility for the elderly, a folk high school, the Danish Medical Association and last but not least to a forest kindergarten. The second week saw the group in Silkeborg and Horsens (Jutland) where the program was organized in cooperation with VIA University College. During this week, the students were able to observe nurses working at a hospital and in home care, and to meet with Danish nursing students at VIA for discussing and reflecting on nursing and education in both countries.
