Student nurse Apsara at work on the ward

Apsara is one of our two nursing students in their second year of studies for a 3-year nursing degree course at the Nepal Institute of Health Science, Kathmandu.  Apsara works extremely hard both with her studies and when she’s on the ward – keep up the great work Apsara, we are very proud of all your efforts.  When she finishes her training, Apsara will go back to her home village in Gorkha District to work as a qualified nurse.  Below are pictures of Apsara’s typical day on the wards –
