Correcting Deficits



In line with the general shift in this world of work, the professional role of nurses is changing throughout the EU: there is more demand for qualifications that go beyond the traditional medical skills as more nurses are required to play managerial roles in medical institutions. There is a problem with knowledge deficits and social gaps between the usual forms of experience gained by nurses either in Romania or Poland and the EU market requirements.

The nursing profession has a high number of women in its ranks, and among the men nurses there is also a higher than average proportion who are gay. The project aims at integrating and promoting these two specific groups in the labour market. We consider that both groups are possibly disadvantaged in the workplace, not being empowered to reach their potential as leaders in the labour market. Our training course will enhance nursing as a career choice for all people and make a direct contribution to challenging current bias in the labour market.

Health Management in Nursing

The need for professional nurses acting in managerial roles is growing throughout the EU. By providing an adequate educational framework for this professional group would also enhance its labour mobility through the European Union and can be used and exploited in wider European context. Therefore, an analysis of training models in EU Member States and a framework for a European model of training in this area would be very useful both for the nursing community as well as for various educational institutions that offer or plan to offer education programmes in this field of competence.

The set of skills associated with the managerial roles of nurses has numerous common features: it involves general knowledge about the health systems and policies, the health services market and its needs, and the foundations of management. The latter includes organisational cultures, the shaping of organisations, operational, strategic and quality management, leadership, motivating and control, change managing, negotiations and conflict solving, as well as issues specific to a given Member State, such as labour law and the respective health system of a given

Since there are several levels of management positions within a hospital, available for the chosen target groups, the project will address:

  1. Staff Administrators,
  2. Heads of Nursing (for a specific hospital area),
  3. Chiefs of Staff.
