Phillips School of Nursing and the National Taipei University of Nursing and Health Sciences located in Taipei, Taiwan have signed an Institutional Affiliation Agreement that establishes the institutions as sister schools.
The affiliation allows for student and faculty exchanges, as well as future joint endeavors related to education, research, and scholarship. The first international exchange will take place in July 2016 with eight PSON students participating in a two-week Complementary Therapy Summer Program.
Held annually, the Complementary Therapy Summer Program provides a special opportunity for students to focus on learning traditional Chinese medicine and complementary therapies through lectures, hands-on practices, and hospital visits. Students will earn elective credits and gain a global perspective on nursing care that they can apply in their future careers.
