This study investigates the effectiveness of an integrated nursing English program administered in a junior college in Taiwan. The program was developed in order to integrate nursing education into general English education as a combined curriculum. The program was designed and administered to 370 second-year nursing majors by four language- trained teachers with little ESP (English for Specific Purposes) experience. Three major course themes were covered in the seven-week program, namely, Food Guide Pyramid, Hospital Admission, and Parts ofthe Body &Health Problems. At the end of the program, an evaluation survey was given out to probe the learners' opinions regarding the course design and content. Comments from a group of nursing teachers in a post-instruction seminar were also highlighted to draw out their perspectives on ways in which the program might be improved. Results of the survey indicated that the majority of learners evaluated the program satisfactorily and agreed that the prograrn effectively enhanced their professional knowledge of nursing and four skills in English. The program was also successful in enhancing the students' interest in learning English. This study may serve as a guide for EFL language-trained teachers to develop related nursing English programs.
