ELI hosts English + Nursing Programs
Ansan Nursing Students at DCH Hospital
This fall Korean students from Ansan University moved from the English language classroom to pathology and radiology labs. For a second year, the ELI partnered with Druid City Hospital (DCH) to provide an opportunity for students to improve their English skills and gain volunteer experience with a local hospital.
The students began their journey studying intensive English for 20 hours a week for 8 weeks. They also attended a class designed to introduce them to useful medical terminology and hospital procedures.
After their intensive English study, students volunteered with DCH for 20 hours per week. During this volunteer experience, the students shadowed physical therapists, doctors, nurses, and lab technicians.
This spring a group of Japanese students from Chiba University will also participate in an English + Nursing program. The ELI will partner with UA’s Capstone College of Nursing to provide a 2-week program which includes nursing class observations, clinical immersion, and simulator tutorials, as well as English instruction. It has been 20 years since UA and Chiba University’s School of Nursing established this program.
