The first things I noticed when I arrived at school at HKU is that you directly felt very welcome by everyone, both teachers and students. Also, when you needed help with anything, it didn't matter if you asked the teachers or students in your class, it felt like everyone did everything they could to help you out, and for that I am very grateful.
I studied four courses: Health Promotion, Introduction to Statistics, Health Assessment and Gerontological Nursing. The quality of the lectures has mostly been good and personally my favourite course was the Health Assessment, because I found that most interesting and it's also the course I think I will make the most use of in my future nursing career. In that course we learned not only how to do the vital signs measurement (which we also do in our university in Jönköping) but we also learn some parts that we don't get to learn in Jönköping, like listening to the heart and lungs and compare the normal findings to the abnormal. In this course we both had a practically and a theoretically test.
To sum up the other courses, Introduction to Statistics is good if you want to work with research in the future. Health Promotion is about how to market health, or in other words how to find ways to reach out to the population and give them knowledge about healthy and unhealth behaviours. Much is about how to use preventive measures to gain health before the unhealthy behaviours occurs. Gerontological Nursing is about elderly care and before we went to Hong Kong we had a similar course in Jönköping, so I would have chosen a different course if that was optional. But I did not have an option to choose my courses, so I basically just had to take what they had to offer.
