This spring the College of Nursing and Health Science welcomes Visiting Nurse Scholar Gong Hairong (Helen) from the Fujian Health College located in Fuzhou, China. This visit will give Gong Hairong an opportunity to experience curriculum, simulation and research approaches employed within our college. Her visit will also expand the cultural understanding within CONHS and deepen education connections for faculty and students.
