College of Nursing Jesenice continues with its international staff and student exchanges

Not only that two Norwegian students from Oslo University College have been included in our study process (more about the event - here), but also are foreign lecturers very interested in giving lectures to our students, in participating at the conferences, consultations, visiting hospitals etc.

In March 2011 Mrs. Anneyce Knight, from University of Greenwich, was an invited lecturer on our master nursing care program, in the framework of the subject Leadership in Health Care. She has also participated at 4th International Conference My Cereer – Quo Vadis: "Specialization in nursing – partnership between nursing and medicine," and had a meeting with the responsible persons from the Nursing Chamber Slovenia.

 



In June 2011 three different foreign lecturers have (in the framework of Erasmus program) presented some valuable contents related to various fields from the nursing discipline. If we listed them in the following order:

Mr. Vidar Frigstad, MSc, Assistant Professor (Oslo University College) has introduced us with the two topics, such as “Mental Health in Norway - from hospital to a community based approach” that was delivered to undergraduate students, and the topic “Using NNN-terminology for clinical reasoning in mental health” that was introduced to master studfents. The master students were very impressed with his introduction of the “Assessment guide for the mental health patients in the hospital environment”. In addition, the lecturer himself was very satisfied with the cordiality and warmth expressed by the colleagues from Ljubljana University Psychiatric Hospital and College of Nursing in Jesenice.

 



Mr. Brian Johnston, MSc, Lecturer (University of the West of Scotland) has presented to our undergraduate student the topic “The Nurses role in Assessment of Need/Care Management: in the Provision of Health and Social Care in the Community”. Besides, he also has lectures in the framework of consultation entitled “Community nursing care in front of new challenges” and actively participated at the 4th International Scientific Conference.

 

             

Mr. Stuart Milligan, PhD, Lecturer (University of the West of Scotland) has also presented to our undergraduate students the topic “Organization of Palliative Care in Scotland”, especially the role of hospic organization. He also actively participated at the consultation entitled “Community nursing care in front of new challenges”, at the 4th International Scientific Conference, and at the end visited Slovenian hospic organization.
Both of the lecturers were also warmly accepted by staff in the General Hospital Jesenice.

 

 

Additionally, we continue with visiting foreign higher education institutions too. In April 2011 the University of the West of Scotland has been visited by the dean, Brigita Skela Savič. Her exchange program included lectures with the topic "Nursing Knowledge as a Response to Society Needs: A Systematic Review of Literature«" and jointly cooperation on two projects, such as "Factors affecting the Professional Esteem of Health Care Professionals Working with Older People«" and "Nursing in Families".

All the activities were partly the result of the recently signed bilateral agreements, namely with the University of Greenwich, University of the West of Scotland, and with others (i.e. Swansea University, JAMK University of Applied Sciences) that are in certain way included in international cooperation.
