Purpose
The purpose of this study was to explore the health management experience of Vietnamese Married Immigrant Women living in the city.
Methods
The study participants were 11 Vietnamese immigrant women residing in the urban area who felt bad about their health. Data collection was conducted in depth through individual interviews, and the collected data were analyzed through Strauss & Corbin data analysis.
Results
The core category was “health is not a necessity but a choice in a strange land called Korea”. The contextual conditions were, “The hard thing-exposing “myself” to the world”, and “Hurts hidden, to be away from people’s eyes”. For the causal condition, the categories of “Unfamiliar life to live alone”, “Unfamiliar life different from expectation”, and “Symptoms of body suddenly suffering alone”, were derived. Through action-interaction, the immigrant women revealed that in their Korean social-structural context, they tended to follow “Health pushed away in turbulent life”. The intervening conditions were “a person who is able to help me”, “places that can give a helping hand nearby”, and “Vietnamese women’s grit”. A Vietnamese married immigrant woman had her own “Health in the chain with life”. As a result, they gained “Health, which is a top priority in life” or “Health oppressed by the weight of life”.
Conclusion
This study enhanced the understanding of the healthcare process of Vietnamese married immigrant women living in urban areas.

PURPOSE
The purpose of this study is to identify differences in disaster awareness, disaster preparedness, and nursing knowledge and practices between Korean and Japanese nursing students.
METHODS
The study subjects were 4th grade nursing students who completed their nursing education in Korea or in Japan. 359 students from Korea and 135 students from Japan participated in this study. Data were analyzed using IBM SPSS 21.0. The χ2 test and the t-test were used to analyze the homogeneity of subjects' general characteristics and disaster-related characteristics. The comparison between the Korean and Japanese nursing students in disaster awareness, disaster preparedness, and nursing knowledge and practices were conducted using ANCOVA.
RESULTS
The Korean nursing students' disaster awareness, disaster preparedness, and nursing knowledge and practice were different from their Japanese counterparts'. The Korean nursing students recognized that the system of disaster management in Korea was insufficient and the negligence of management was one of the causes of the disaster. They wanted to participate in activities for disaster preparedness education and management.
CONCLUSION
A disaster nursing curriculum dealing with disaster awareness, disaster preparedness, and nursing knowledge and practices, should be developed, implemented, and evaluated particularly for Korean nursing students.

PURPOSE
This study aims to examine the relationships among social discrimination, subjective health, and personal satisfaction based on the country of origin.
METHODS
The analysis was based on 16,958 immigrants who participated in the National Survey of Multicultural Family 2015 in Korea. This study conducted stratified cross-analysis of social discrimination for the differences in subjective health and personal satisfaction. Multivariate-adjusted odds ratios and 95% confidence intervals for the relationships among social discrimination, subjective health, and personal satisfaction were examined with multivariable logistic regression.
RESULTS
There were differences in experience of social discrimination, subjective health status, and personal satisfaction according to the country of origin. Groups without the experience of social discrimination had better subjective health and personal satisfaction than the other groups.
CONCLUSION
This study demonstrates that a discrimination prevention program needs to be developed based on a cultural approach.
