Bailey explained she has always wanted to be a part of a program such as this and finally it has all come together for her. Although somewhat apprehensive about what she will encounter, Bailey recently learned that a 2008 CCC nursing graduate, Priya Bajracharya, currently employed at CVPH, is from the area in Nepal not far from where she will be staying. Bajracharya arranged for Bailey to be in touch with her parents. And, although they are the only people Bailey will know in the area, she is pleased to have the connection.
Bailey had hoped to be able to do a blog while in Nepal however, access to the Internet is very limited, and so she said she will take photos and try to keep a journal.
