I support Italian nurses in asking for a full recognition of Nursing Science and creating sufficient positions of Nurse Professors in University.
We do not want Nursing Sciences being taught by non-nursing professors!
Educational standard should be maintained and enhanced to correlate with best practice recommendations. Any depreciation in nursing education will negatively impact the standard of care delivered, and quality of nursing services.
Many Italian Nurses Associations are supporting the petition, launched by CNAI (Nurses' Association representing Italian Nurses in ICN).
Are already supporting the petition:
- ICN (International Council of Nurses)
- EFN (European Federation of Nurses Associations)
- ENSA (European Nursing Students Association)
