Nurses have a responsibility to influence health via appreciation of the influence that globalisation has on clinical practice, research and education. At Cardiff University we recognise the importance of exposing our students to a variety of health care cultures as we believe that it fosters empathy, inspiration and knowledge enrichment within our nursing students. In March 2023, we have 13 students travelling, from Wales, to Grenada, Sweden, Jordan, Tanzania and Mexico to participate in nursing practice in those countries. In the past, students have captured their experiences through traditional means such as written reflections for review by Academic Tutors. However, in order to embrace the ever-growing technological culture, we intend to pilot digital capture. We feel that this is a consideration of the mediums used currently by nursing students and will allow for creative storytelling and reflection. This innovation has been created in collaboration between Academics, Professional Support staff and nursing students themselves. It is hoped that, not only will the project be an effective means of reflection, but the multimedia outputs will be used to inspire other students to embrace international experiences.
