Adaptation course for Foreign Nurses to Practice in Europe
Nurses play a critical role in providing health care not only in traditional settings such as hospitals and long-term care institutions, but increasingly in primary care (especially in offering care to the chronically ill) and in home care settings.
In recent years there are concerns in many European countries about shortages of nurses, and these concerns may well intensify in the future as the demand for nurses continues to increase . It is said that some healthcare organizations in Europe are faced with staffing dilemmas that are reaching crisis levels in certain places.
Modern nursing must be based on the latest medical knowledge and technology and best practices as they unfold right now in the best hospitals.
As one of the few degrees that offers guaranteed job security and stability (especially with the current high demand for nurses), nursing add on programmes are thus extremely sought after.
