My husband has been in hospital - in Coronary Care indeed, in one of the large private hospitals in Brisbane. I was with him the other day and a nurse came in to take his observations. She was Chinese.
A lovely girl with a bright personality, she was from Harbin. We had a short chat while she worked. She did not do any nursing in China, but managed to do the IELTS and qualified to study nursing at a university in Australia.
I was so impressed. She did her job efficiently, and also showed great empathy and for a short while chatted. She had come on her own - all her family are back in China, and she has not decided what her long term plans are. She worries that she may not fit in the Chinese medical system.
I hope I see her again. She was quite inspiring.
