On July 18,2011, guest Professor Dr. Jinah K. Shin, DNSc,NPP,RN presented â€śJourney from Clinical Practice to Research Initiativesâ€? to a combined group of psychiatric nursing students from Ewha Womenâ€™s University in Seoul,South Korea and advanced practice psychiatric nurse practitioner students from Columbia University School of Nursing. 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 Womenâ€™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.
