A second presentation followed by a student,Ms.Jiwon Shin on prevention of violence in hospital settings. The advanced practice students were asked to describe their clinical placements, patient populations, and the nature of their work. This combined class was part of a rich cultural and clinical exchange as the Ewha University students completed a brief experience under the preceptorship of Dr Shin who practices as a Nurse Practitioner in Psychiatry at Elmhurst Hospital where she is Director of Nursing Research. Accompanying the students was Dr. Lee, Professor at the College of Nursing at Ewha Women’s University and President of the Korean Society of Nursing Science. We look forward to future visits and opportunities for collaboration in educational and research activities.
