The Brigham Young University College of Nursing recently hosted professors and executives from Qilu Hospital of Shandong University in Shandong, China, giving them an opportunity to witness first-hand some of the laboratory training BYU nursing students receive.
In addition to observing student training, the guests’ visit to BYU included a panel of College of Nursing faculty members who discussed typical U. S. nursing roles and the preparation of nursing students at BYU.
During their two-week tour of the United States, the delegation visited several universities and hospitals to learn more about American nursing programs, explore opportunities for short-term student and faculty exchange programs and look into joint research possibilities.
Shandong University is one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in China, with 45,000 full-time students and nearly 3,000 faculty members.
