Abstract :

Lived experiences of nursing students learning an English context based-instruction (CBI) provide greater insight to develop an effective classroom teaching strategy in nursing education. The main objective of this study was to investigate the Freshmen Korean nursing student├ó┬?┬?s experiences in the classroom as they learn the nursing subjects taught in English language. Interview as a method of research was used to explore the views, experiences, beliefs and motivations of individual participants. The researcher extracted the different facets from the 9 students of Woosong University, Department of Nursing who were selected randomly based on their grades. To analyze the data, the method used to code and categorize the interview data were adapted from approaches to qualitative data analysis. Five themes emerged from the interview. The Nursing students stories showed that learning an English context based-instruction (CBI) maybe attained by having the following traits, ├ó┬?┬?readiness to learn├ó┬?┬Ł, ├ó┬?┬?hard work├ó┬?┬Ł, ├ó┬?┬?devotion to study amidst difficulty├ó┬?┬Ł, ├ó┬?┬?determination to pass the subject├ó┬?┬Ł, and ├ó┬?┬?staying focused├ó┬?┬Ł. Hence, the significance of this study is both educational and cross-cultural in nature. In conclusion, nursing students learning an English context based-instruction (CBI) is affected by their readiness to learn and the level of their English comprehension. They experienced some degree of difficulty in understanding the subjects taught in English that leads to anxiety. Furthermore, this study extended the data in the field of second language research in South Korea, as it has implications that directly encroach upon nursing students├ó┬?┬? preparation and readiness for globalization in the nursing field.
