China - Nursing/Teaching

  1. Hi there.
    I have always had a great interest in China.
    Now that they seem to be opening up their markets in many ways, I was wondering if this was applicable to nursing.
    Specifically are they interested in having international (English speaking) nurses work in their system? Are there Nursing Schools, Colleges or Universities? How could I contact them if there were.
    It seems very hard to find information on the web about the country.
    If there is anyone out there with knowlege on Nursing and Nursing Schools in China I would love any information available, ie personal knowledge, web link, literature thats about. That sort of stuff.
    Thanks to anyone who can help.

    Without speaking Chinese you would be at a total loss. You would have to take your boards in Chinese, the same way that any nurse coming to the US has to take them in English.

    You will find very little information in English on the computer, it is all in Chinese.

    Sorry........................

    A Taiwanese colleague was telling me the other day that the minimum requirement to teach nursing in Taiwan is a PHD.

    I'm from Taiwan. It's true that the minimum requirement to teach in a University here is Master and probably mostly PHD in a few years. However, if you're willing to apply for lecturer or preceptor, a bachelor degree in nursing will do. And of course, you'll definitely need to know the Chinese language in order to teach here, because I doubt schools would hire interpreters. But since the trend here is finding job in the States, I don't think it would be hard for you to find a job as a lecturer in one of the NCLEX review class.
    Hope this helps. ^^

    Hi there,
    I am from Hong Kong and I am going for my ADN degree right now. I am just got a Tungsten E palm pilot and I am wondering if you know of any free software for Chinese/ English dictionary online that I can download? And do you know of any good website that can translate some diseases and med term to Chinese?
    Many thanks,

    Look at what used to be "Handsprings" website, which may now be under the PalmOne site under software. They have many language programs that you can download from there. Some are completely free and others are shareware, prices could possibly be about HK$70 or so, if not less. They are a very good source and I have used them for many things, great games also available and in Chinese.

    Also, welcome to Allnurses.com.....................Hope that this helps.

    I have used this page for european languages

    http://www.freetranslation.com/


    And the ABC Australia has a downloadable language pack for chinese but since I don't speak chinese (darn it!) I can't say how useful it is.

    SBS Australia has an awesome language service but it is not free

    Just for curious, so, they also have an nationalwise board for nursing exams just like NCLEX? Do you know any more information related to their licensure application procedure? Thanks.

    You would be better making this a "new thread" - you will get more and specific replies.

    Are you looking for a conference in a specific city or concerning a specific subject? Right now the way that you have it worded is the same as looking to attend a confernce in the US. Please be more specific and I can then help you..........................

    The have an exam and if you want to see information concerning it, it is only in Chinese. You would need software to view it.
