Title:
English Camp: A Collaborative Effort to Support Romanian Nurses
Abstract:
English Camp: A Collaborative Effort to Support Romanian Nurses
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2005
Author:Williams, Carol, RN, MSN, CPNP
P.I. Institution Name:Private Pediatric Practice/Richland Pediatrics, Mansfield OH
Title:Nurse Practitioner
Romanian nurses, who have lived in an oppressed society, are struggling to advance the nursing profession in their country. As Romania seeks international status, nurses are faced with the challenge of learning English, dealing with continuing human rights issues, and updating nursing knowledge. In a collaborative effort, a team of American nurses travels to Romania each summer to hold ?Nurses' English Camp.? During the camp American nurses teach English language classes and hold nursing seminars, focusing on assessment, professional roles, evidenced based practice, critical thinking and nursing process. Held in a mountain resort area, there are many opportunities for interaction through extracurricular activities during the camp. The key to the camp's success is the formation of interpersonal relationships between the nurses. Following the camp, American team members keep in touch with the Romanian nurses through correspondence, and many return to help with future camps. The Romanian team offers support throughout the year by providing follow-up and additional English classes. The camp has become increasingly popular, even with Romanian physicians, which has encouraged an unprecedented collaboration between nursing and medical disciplines. In the summer of 2004, American nurses were honored guests at the celebration of the newly formed Romanian Nurses Association in Timisora. ?Nurses' English Camp? is an example of a successful international collaboration that can be used as a model to advance nursing practice in other countries. Details and outcomes of the camp experience will be shared at the presentation. Attendees will meet the camp originators through photographs and learn about the challenges of living and nursing in Eastern Europe.
