Baylor University Nursing School Trip to Nam Dinh - May 2015

June 15, 2015

The Baylor University Louise Herrington School of Nursing trip to Nam Dinh this past May was significant to both Baylor and Nam Dinh University of Nursing. The Baylor professors began training 30 nursing students, from different provinces nationwide, for the first ever Master of Arts degree in Nursing course work, as part of the collaborative agreement between the two schools.

There were 4 subjects taught:

- Evidence Based Nursing Practice

- Leadership and Management

- Concept: Role of Advanced Nursing Practices

- Teaching Methods in Nursing

The course work took place from May 3rd to June 17th with 5 visiting professors alternating lectures. Since the courses were taught in English, all the students had to pass an English proficiency test first. This made understanding the courses more challenging but also helped the students accelerate their English skills.

In addition to the lectures, the Baylor team brought 6 Baylor nursing students to Nam Dinh to visit the Nam Dinh General Hospital and Traditional Hospital to learn more about eastern traditional medicine. This was a great opportunity for American students to learn how people in Vietnam use herbs to treat illnesses and injuries.

One of the most interesting parts of the trip was the student exchange class in simulation practice. Students from Nam Dinh University of Nursing and students from Baylor Nursing School showed each other how they treat a case.

Hands on student training seeing patients

At the end of the trip, the students and 2 faculty members had a chance to visit the National Pediatric Hospital in Hanoi. They had a great time visiting the different departments, the patients and especially the Simulation Lab.

The Baylor faculty and students learned a great from their time in Vietnam. The National Pediatric Hospital as well as Nam Dinh University of Nursing is looking forward to having the Baylor team come back and continue training student nurses to help improve the overall level of care for patients in Vietnam.
