During my course I got involved in the Erasmus project, which gave me the opportunity to spend several months in Spain. As a student nurse I wanted to observe the similarities and differences of care in both countries to understand the evidence base behind the care delivered to children. Within a few weeks of spending time in practice and reflecting on this, it became quite clear that things were done a lot differently.
