A Study on Global Nursing Practice Education Experience
This study attempted to obtain basic data for developing a global nursing practice education program.
The data collection period was from July 2 to 11, 2020. The study participants were professors with experience in design, operation and management of global nursing practice education or experts with experience in international cooperation projects, and 8 people who agreed to participate in focus group interview (FGI). FGI was conducted twice in total and the directed content analysis method was applied.
The categories of ‘practice design’ are ‘growing as a global nursing leader’ and ‘working together towards one goal’. The categories of ‘practice operation’ are ‘watching, listening, and performing’, ‘self-directed organizing from preparation to finishing’, and ‘learning the value of participation rather than grades’. The category of ‘practice management’ is ‘one’s own weight to carry’.
Global nursing practice education aims one goal – growing as a global nursing leader – and is self-directed course from preparation to an end with watching, listening and performing together. It is about learning the value of participation rather than grades. This can be used as basic data for the design, operation and management of global nursing practice education in the future.
