Guanghua Nurse Fund arranges visit to GCU
A delegation from China recently visited GCU, on a trip that was organised by the Guanghua Nurse Fund (GNF). 
GNF was launched in June 2006 by the China Guanghua Science and Technology Foundation to improve the education and training of nurses in China and to contribute to a significant improvement in the health and wellbeing of the nation. In focusing on the education and training of nurses and associated professionals in China, GNF provides opportunities for Chinese students to study overseas, including the UK. 
The delegation included the Secretary-General of GNF, Ms Lihua Gong, and the Director of International Relations, Ms Hua Liu. There were also representatives of Chinese health schools: Beijing Changping Health School; Changsha Health School; Chongqing Three Gorges Medical College; Daqing Medical College; Huzhou Teachers’ College; Jinhua Polytechnic; Nantong Tichen Health School; Qiqihar Medical College; Yaan Vocational College; Yancheng Health School; Yibin Vocational and Technical College. 
Principal Professor Gillies and Professor Nicky James, Pro Vice-Chancellor and Executive Dean of the School of Health and Life Sciences, both delivered presentations and a special reception was held for the visitors.  
Principal and Pro Vice-Chancellor Professor Pamela Gillies commented: “The commitment of China to the improvement of the health and wellbeing of its nation of over 1.36 billion citizens is bold and admirable. This commitment is embodied in the energy, enthusiasm and dedication of the delegates from the Guanghua Nurse Fund who Glasgow Caledonian University warmly welcomed.  We look forward to working in partnership with our colleagues from the Guanghua Nurse Fund in any way that might help and support them in reaching their important goal.”
Professor James added: “It was such a pleasure to welcome old friends from the Guang Hua Nursing Fund and all our new colleagues from China. Our discussions confirmed the international importance of sharing ideas about nurse training, education and research as well as confirming the importance of other health professions, such as vision sciences and imaging.”
Ms Lihua Gong thanked Professor Gillies for the reception and emphasised the wish of Guanghua and all the health schools represented in the delegation to collaborate with GCU in a variety of mutually beneficial ways.
