Student Exchange Program ENM

Cultural awareness is an ever evolving learning process.

The European Nursing Module (ENM) Network offers basic nurse education programmes leading to the right to practice nursing in their specific country. The principle behind the Network was to develop a short course module, agreed and accepted by all member institutions that could be accessed by student nurses studying within those programmes. Students would have the opportunity, within that Module, for an exchange with another member institution, allowing experience of a health care system within another European country and of the social and cultural nursing issues within that country. We welcome incoming students in Bachelor of Nursing studies in the second half of their program.
