I’m Léandre Mouy, a French student nurse from the Red Cross in Douai, who did his last internship in Riga, Latvia. My internship took place from 26.04 to 28.06, I was at the Children’s Hospital in Riga, really great experience! I did my training in 3 different places in this hospital: interdisciplinary, ORL department and cardiovascular department, all of them were very nice! Nice staff, nice nurses, nice head-nurse in all, really a very amazing welcome here!
I chose Riga because I really wanted to discover a new country and a new city where I had never been! I don’t regret my choice, Riga is an amazing city with a lot of things to see! The «+» during my training in Riga is the time which one is taken by the nurse for us, the Erasmus student because the language is difficult for us and so it’s difficult to speak with to our patients.
The most interesting moment during the internship was when we went to the operating theater, really nice to see how they work there! Another good moment was when we were at the Riga Red Cross College during the International week, it was a great moment and a real pleasure to share and speak with other students from different countries!
During free time, the best moments are when you travel to other cities and countries around Riga!!
I have only one advice for someone who wants to try the Erasmus experience: GO AND ENJOY IT!
