Continuing Professional Education for nurses granted with a Diploma in General Nursing outside the EU/EEA
In cooperation with working life, the project develops a qualification path for non-Bachelor-level nursing graduates from outside the EU and EEA countries into the Finnish working life.
The goal is to increase nurses' knowledge of Finnish social and health care structures, the legislation that guides them, patient safety and the ethical principles of nursing work, and to strengthen the Finnish language skills in working life. In addition, the project compiles and evaluates methods for assessing the competence of nurses.
The project produces a model of the nurse's qualification path for the website, from which it can be used in the future when recruiting foreign nurses to work in Finnish social and health care. Turku University of Applied Sciences is responsible for assessing the competence of nurses.
In addition to Turku University of Applied Sciences, the following universities of applied sciences offer the education in Finland:
