Carol Davila University
The FINE workshop, organized by the Carol Davila nursing school in Galati on May 16th, was very successful. More than 130 participants, both students and educators from various Romanian institutions, took part in this event.
This workshop aimed at encouraging participants to think about the perspectives and stakes of nursing education in Romania, which currently remains outside of the university system.
During this event, FINE met representatives of the Ministry of Education, the president of the Order of Nurses, and many directors from healthcare and education institutions.
In the European context of professional and patient mobility, Romania will have many challenges to overcome to respond to the minimal training requirements listed in the 2013/55/UE directive and initiate a reform of nursing studies. This gave FINE the opportunity to reassert its position: a bachelor-level diploma must condition the access to the nursing profession, following a minimum of 3 years of studies with 180 ECTS credits. It also promotes the possibility of a complete curriculum: bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, and doctorate.
FINE reasserts the indisputable relation between a high level of training and the quality and security of healthcare.
FINE, its members, and its subscribers, commit to promoting nursing studies in Europe that facilitate the development of high-level professional skills, in order to exercise an autonomous and responsible role.
We thank our Romanian colleagues for their warm welcome.
We invite all our members to join us at the Nancy conference in France from September 24th to September 26th. You can still submit your résumés until June 15th.
