Abstract

Background/Objectives: This is a study related to the adaptation of Chinese international student at a local university to a nursing college for 4 years. Methods/Statistical analysis: There were a total of 6 participants, 2 male and 4 female. Their interviews were qualitatively analyzed. Findings: The main research results are as follows. Chinese international students classified the difficulties in adjusting to nursing college into three categories. First, it is difficult to study professionally in the Department of Nursing. This is a challenge for studying at university and for clinical practice in hospitals. Second, it was difficult to make Korean friends because I was not fluent in Korean and was unfamiliar with Korean culture. Third, it was difficult to relate to professors and friends while conducting non-face-to-face classes due to the COVID-19 infectious disease. Improvements/Applications: The research results provide basic data that international student from China who choose nursing can adapt well to their major subjects.
