Once your final bill is generated, you are expected to clear your dues by paying cash or by a credit/debit card. The nurse will hand over your discharge summary and belongings (like thermometer, urinal bedpan, etc. - used during the course of your stay). She will also explain the medications you need to continue after your discharge and any other follow-up instructions.

The trip took the students into a new environment which gave us the experience of travelling in a group and taught us to be respectful of the locations we visited. This particularly was advantageous to us and helped to find to learn more about the subject on nursing management which the trip focused. It provided valuable educational information in a more informal environment. It also gave us an idea about private & government nursing college and hospital set up functioning. The type of memoies that educational trips create, called “episodic memories”, helps us retain information for longer periods.
