Learning nursing all the time

Liang Shuang/Cool

Thirty days compact memorable trip was short but meaningful. The delegation of Wuhan University, out “The Duke team”, has gone to many places, met a bunch of lovely people, and enjoyed the feeling of sheer American culture.

As the only nursing student in the delegation this year, I spared no effort to adapt to the new environment and learn from a vast array of information, research findings, demographic and epidemiological scans, public health policies, public health goals and how the public health system works in North Carolina (NC), at the state level, nationally and in various urban and rural municipalities. Nevertheless, I participated and engaged in many community-based experiences related to the core public health principles. I couldn’t help to consider twice about the relationship between nursing and Affordable Care Act, The Millennium Development Goals, Water Reclamation Facility, Durham County Health Department, State Health Department, NC Department of Agriculture, Fire Department, EMS, Non-Profit Organizations and so on .It seems that I learnt a lot from 7th July to 8th August, but I know that knowledge is infinite, and one month is not enough for me to master advanced nursing knowledge in NC. What most impressed me was a windshield survey in Durham City, from which I began to understand community nursing.

As we all know, assessment is the first step of nursing program. For the beginning, I’d like to learn the community assessment, taking the example of collecting community assessment data through a windshield survey in Durham. With the help of Dr. Powell and Dr. Hartman, the very kind professors of Duke University, I identified the community assessment content such as social demography, epidemiology, environment, policy, education, health resources, management, etc. Thanks to Dr. Powell and Dr. Hartman, I knew precisely what I wanted and how to complete a simple community health assessment in Durham. After observing and illustrating data collected during the windshield survey, I observed that poverty, obesity and chronic disease, access to health care were the three priorities of health care in Durham. But, were those true? It is required that any observations should be tested before they become conclusions. Thus, I searched references, consulted experienced experts and read 2013 Durham County-State of the County Health Report. Ultimately, they were matched.

Despite learning, we were meticulous cared by Dr. Powell and Mrs. Belinda Wisdom. Culture shock was not a matter for us. On the contrary, we tasted NC, not only for the various food from kinds of countries, but also for the sheer American recreations. I have never seen baseball game or American idol at the scene. More than that, the last week we went to the Atlantic coast and visited a battleship in the World War II. At the same time, we warmly treated Dr. Powell, Mrs. Belinda Wisdom and our American friends with traditional personally-packaged dumplings. Pleasant time always flies. No matter what colors of our skin, no matter what languages of our mother tongue, no matter what we ate were hamburgers or dumplings, sincere friends will always be a family.

Last but not least, thanks for all the people in this program. I really appreciate the opportunity to broaden my horizon and I can bet that everyone gained his harvest in this program.

Let’s develop nursing hand in hand.
