Back after a month in Taiwan

I spent a month in Taiwan studying the performance cardiac nursing care in the ER, OR, and Critical Care Units at Cheng Hsin General Hospital in Taipei. It was an incredible experience, and I will share the nursing aspects of the trip in following posts. In my off time I visited many of Taiwan's historical and cultural centers, such as the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial (above). I came home with a much better sense of East Asian culture, and a deep respect for the Taiwanese, who live under the constant threat of invasion from Communist China. These are a beautiful people. Posted by Picasa
