The Problem Solving for Better Health – Nursing™ (PSBHN™) program in Vietnam evolved from a partnership among Hue Medical College School of Nursing, Temple University School of Allied Health, Health Volunteers Overseas, and DHF. In March 2004, 23 student nurses at Hue Medical College participated in the initial PSBHN™ workshop. They work in teams to implement community-oriented projects as part of their course work. The student/faculty projects are making a significant impact in the Nam Dong, a community with a population of approximately 22,000 people.
