Distance education fornursing personnel in non-EU countries in order to employ the subsequent trained personnel in EU hospitals and health care centers
SkyNurse developed an operating centre for the delivery of distance education and residential courses directed at nursing personnel in non-EU countries in order to employ the subsequent trained personnel in EU hospitals and health care centers. SkyNurse also aimed to improve nursing practice throughout the EU by developing standard distance learning models suitable for national and international use that are reproducible in different fields of application and in different countries, and by preparing learning materials that will offer uniform education, cultivate a harmonious professional background and promote standardised nursing procedures. SkyNurse favored economical resource saving in Health Services. The courses were intended for nurses who have a basic knowledge of nursing and who were in need of updating their knowledge of clinical practice and standard operating procedures relevant to the application of new technologies in health care.
