Learning through virtual mobility in nursing education

One of the assignments of the nursing education is to give the students awareness of international perspective in health care, being able to care for diverse population and to work abroad1. The education therefore gives students the opportunity to do parts of their clinical education abroad. To open the possibility of internationalization for all students and not just those who travel abroad, virtual mobility is an opportunity. Virtual mobility means studying in an international and multicultural environment through digital media, without having to travel physically2. This abstract presents a collaboration between Lund University and University of Exeter in nursing program's first-year students from 2019 and is ongoing. The aim of the students' learning activities was to describe safe care via virtual modules based on current national and global guidelines and to discuss sustainable development based on situations related to safe care from a global perspective.
According to the student's evaluation most students are interested in participating in these learning activities and develop a cultural awareness useful in today’s ongoing internationalization of health care practice. Furthermore, there was a desire for continued virtual mobility through the education and a planning is in progress. The opportunity to make contacts throw students mobility also opens in these contexts and between educational institutions to promote the exchange of research and knowledge. This exchange has contributed to in-depth knowledge of similarities and differences between nations regarding views, routines, and legislation.
The students concluded that it was rewarding and instructive discussions and the care around patient safety was quite similar in the two countries. There is an effort to avoid medical injuries as much as possible and regardless of geographical location, nurses work towards the same goal of good and safe care.
