Abstract
A progressive immersion bilingual teaching mode was investigated in the nursing major of Sino-foreign cooperative education. Ninety two international nursing students from 2 classes of 2014 grade were selected as the experimental group, and literature research, interview, question and action methods were used for the implementation of progressive immersion bilingual teaching mode. The higher vocational nursing students from 2014 grade who learned the same courses at the same time were chosen as the control group, and taught with the conventional teaching method. The results showed that students in the experimental group were willing to accept the progressive immersion bilingual teaching mode, and there was no significant difference in the final examination scores on Human Anatomy and Basic Nursing between the two groups, while the pass rate of the National Profession English METS 1~3 level test in the experimental group was significantly different from that in the control group (P<0.05). The application of the progressive immersion bilingual teaching mode may stimulate the students' interest in English and improve their professional English level.
