Need volunteers who can share their practice sites with Hong Kong Students

Posted over 2 years ago by Regina Pommer

This year we are welcoming two Maser's prepared NP students from Hong Kong during the week of May 15th through May 19th.  I am asking for volunteers who can share their practice sites and allow the students to observe the NP role with these students. The goal is to observe the role in different sites such as primary care, rehab, hospitalist, clinic, pain management, or any specialty I have not addressed.


I will bring each student to you in the morning and pick them up in the afternoon.  Their objective is to observe the autonomy, collaboration, and skills of the NP role in the US.  It is strictly an observational experience and provides excellent insight for the student and us to exchange learning experiences about health care in different cultures.


This program has been in place for 14 years and I appreciate the generosity of your time in sharing what you do with these enthusiastic learners.  Please respond to me at Gege Weissman  if you are interested and available during this week.


Thanks so much.
