Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Högskolan Kristianstad ger sjuksköterskestudenter möjlighet att göra utlandspraktik. Sjuksköterskestudenter som gör utlandspraktik i ett utvecklingsland erfar upplevelser som påverkar studentens framtida profession, internationella perspektiv, personliga och intellektuella utveckling. Syfte: Syftet var att beskriva sjuksköterskestudenters upplevelser av att göra utlandspraktik i ett utvecklingsland som Sri Lanka. Metod: En kvalitativ empirisk studie genomfördes som grundades på subjektiva dagboksanteckningar i berättelseform. Datainsamlingen har analyserats med kvalitativ innehållsanalys. Resultat: Fyra teman formulerades utifrån tidsepoker: Starten: allt var nytt, Mitten av resan: att finna en vardag, Slutet: blickarna framåt och Första tiden i Sverige: att försöka landa. Upplevelser som beskrivs är exempelvis: känslostorm, att hantera svåra stunder och känslan av personlig utveckling. Diskussion: Att göra utlandspraktik, möta en annan kultur och därmed genomgå en personlig förändring kan hjälpa sjuksköterskestudenter i sin kommande profession som sjuksköterskor. Detta när det både gäller möten och kommunikation med människor från en annan kultur men även förståelsen av ett sjukdomsbesked och faserna som ingår i sjukdomsförloppet.
