Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This two-part series describes the collaborative summer home care nursing program for Korean nurses conducted by the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH, in cooperation with the College of Nursing of Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea. Part I focuses on the development of the collaboration, and part II focuses on the content of the three-week summer home care program and describes related issues and problems as well as suggests solutions. The series concludes with the findings on the program from the postprogram evaluations of students, preceptors, and patients. The collaborative educational program was developed to give Korean home care nurses an opportunity to gain clinical experience in home care nursing in the United States so that they could learn how to deliver better-quality home care for patients and their informal caregivers. Therefore, the program focused on practice-oriented lectures and clinical experiences.
