Japanese Disaster Nursing Program Visits Rutgers
In August, The Center for Global Health hosts a delegation of Japanese nursing students from tsunami-affected areas who intend to pursue a career in disaster nursing. They are brought to the United States through a partnership between J&J and Tomodachi, which was an organization founded by the US military in response to the tsunami.
At Rutgers School of Nursing, the students are given presentations about Rutgers University by Dr. Willard and about Dr. Quinn's research on children affected by Hurricane Sandy. They also toured the facility at Paterson, with special emphasis given to the simulation lab. A trip to the Jersey shore is also included.
