Korean Nursing Exchange Program
The College of Health offers a unique learning annually to encourage cultural exchange and connections with the College of Health’s nursing program.
Each year, the university hosts a group of nursing students from Deajeon Health Institute of Technology (HIT) in South Korea.
Through a partnership between the School of Nursing and Daejon University that began 6 years ago, the exchange program gives Korean nursing students an opportunity to be immersed in American culture, including participating in several field experiences such as visiting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, MedShare and inpatient and community health care facilities.
The students also take an English course, interact with Clayton State students and have several other classroom experiences. At the end of the four-week program, a graduation ceremony is held for the nursing students.
The program has proven to be an invaluable experience for the Daejon University and Clayton State University; student evaluations of the program have been favorable, while several Clayton State faculty members have visited HIT with one faculty member teaching there for a semester.
