We are honored to host the ENM CONFERENCE this year!

The European Nursing Module is the most effective program for training our students to practice nursing at European standards.

The activities of the students involved in the ENM exchanges and the analysis of these activities within the annual conferences are the most important educational resources for the training of nurses who can be employed anywhere in Europe.

Dear collaborators, we are waiting for you with great joy!

A few words about the organiser

”Carol Davila” Nursing School is the first private school in Bucharest and in Romania since 1990. The school was established and led until 2008 by Dr. Mioara Mincu, a great personality in the medical field.

”Carol Davila” Nursing School is named after the founder of the Romanian School of Medicine, Carol Davila. It is a nonprofit institution that operates through self-financing.

Our mission is to train nurse as a Health Educator, with fundamental values to the profession: love for people, health and life; respect for the profession; passion and capacity for work.

After 34 years of existence the school

-has modern offices; there are 2 locations in central Bucharest.

-has a team of highly trained teachers.

-has ensured nursing practice in the best hospitals in Bucharest.

-our graduates are practicing as registered nurses, pharmacy nurses and balneo-physiokinetoteraphy nurses in Romania and abroad.

Why „Carol Davila” Nursing School is different from other schools?

We are concerned to permanently improve the quality of our services and to provide students training at European level and complex educational programs. Also, we continually strive to ensure numerous practice partnerships, both in the best Bucharest hospitals and from European countries. In more than 30 years of activity, thousands of graduates benefits of the exceptional quality of the theoretical studies offered by high-level teaching staff and from the practical training carried out in the most varied medical units.

„Carol Davila” Nursing School develops international projects in which students have the opportunity to participate in clinical internships held in hospitals from the best performing health systems in Europe: UK, Finland, Sweden, Switzerland, Norway, Denmark, Holland, Belgium, Spain, Italy and many others.

International exchanges

In 1999 our school was the first Romanian member of the European Nursing Module, only two years after the network became operational, and has been active since then.

Our students have the opportunity to do practical internships in hospitals and clinics all over Europe, to take part in presentations, conferences and exchanges with schools and universities of nursing from Europe.

We are the only school in Romania that is an active member of the European Nursing Module (since 1999).

Also, through the Erasmus+ Accreditation, for the period 2022 – 2027, 175 students from all professional qualifications will benefit of internships in hospitals in European countries.

ENM Annual Conferences

Our representatives participated in the ENM Annual Conferences and in 2004 „Carol Davila” Nursing was the organizer of the event. Our school will organize this important international event in 2024.

ENM Student Exchanges

Every year, the exchange process, has become more intense and over the last years we have been one of the most active schools in the network.

The exchange takes place in: October, March and May. For two weeks, the students attend internships in the best nursing schools and hospitals in Europe. At the same time, our school organizes activities for the clinical training process and cultural activities for all the foreign students, who participate in the exchange, in Romania.

How we manage the ENM exchanges:

  • Accommodation – we can help with the booking of apartments, however this can also be organised by themselves.
  • Schedule – The two weeks schedule will include school visits and hospital practice.
  • Hospital Practice – Depending on your choices, you can visit departments such as surgery, paediatrics, emergency unit, psychiatry, cardiology, neurology and others. You will be accompanied by nursing teachers and also by students of our school.
  • Leisure – We will help you discover Bucharest by providing information to help you navigate the city. Our students can accompany you on your evening trips. However, you are free to organize your leisure time as you wish. At weekend we can organize trips to tourist attractions.
  • Official Dinners – We invite you to a welcome dinner, in order to have the opportunity to know each other better and also to a farewell dinner, at the end of the exchange.

European Nursing Module Network – ENM

The European Nursing Module (ENM) Network was founded in 1994 with the Inaugural Meeting held in Lewes, Sussex, United Kingdom. This initial meeting brought together a group of individuals representing educational institutions which offered basic nurse education programmes leading to the right to practice nursing in their specific country. Some of these programmes were based in hospitals and some in educational institutions.

The principle behind the Network was to develop a Module, which could be accessed by student nurses studying within those programmes. If appropriate, the Module would be validated by the individual institutions’ appropriate validating body as an elective part of their basic nursing programme.

The broad aims of the Module

-To develop the student’s understanding of the concept of culture

-To develop the students’ understanding of European and professional cultural issues which will promote and enhance health care by individuals practising in a range of settings

-To enable students to recognise the international dimension of professional nursing knowledge and health care

-To develop the students’ awareness, understanding and acceptance of cultural differences.

-To develop the students’ awareness of, and respect for, clients’ individual cultures

-To develop the students’ understanding of the influence of historical, philosophical, ethical, economic, -political and professional factors on their own and others’ professional cultures

-To develop the students’ awareness of professional culture and role, and an increasing awareness of their own cultural identity

Outcomes of the Module

-The student will have developed her/his awareness of the influence of culture on health, welfare and professional nursing

-The student will value the sharing of multi-cultural knowledge and experience

-The student will demonstrate an awareness and tolerance of other cultures

-The student will reflect on her/his values and attitudes relating to nursing and health care

-The student will share her/his learning experiences with colleagues

-The student will gain understanding of, and empathy for, the experience of „being a stranger”

-The student will develop her/his understanding of how nursing cultures define nursing and the nurses’ role

More details:

Welcome to Bucharest Romania!

Bucharest is the capital and largest city of Romania. The metropolis stands on the River Dâmbovița in south-eastern Romania. Its population is officially estimated at 1.76 million residents within a greater metropolitan area of 2.3 million residents, which makes Bucharest the 8th most-populous city in the European Union. Bucharest is a major cultural, political and economic hub and the country’s seat of government.

Bucharest was first mentioned in documents in 1459. The city became capital in 1862 and is the centre of Romanian media, culture and art. Its architecture is a mix of historical (mostly Eclectic, but also Neoclassical and Art Nouveau), interbellum (Bauhaus, Art Deco and Romanian Revival architecture), socialist era and modern.

The city is situated on the banks of the Dâmbovița River. Several lakes – the most important of which are Lake Herăstrău, Lake Floreasca, Lake Tei and Lake Colentina – stretch across the northern parts of the city. In addition, in the centre of the capital is a small artificial lake – Lake Cișmigiu – surrounded by the Cișmigiu Gardens. These gardens have a rich history, having been frequented by poets and writers.

Bucharest parks and gardens also include Herăstrău Park, Tineretului Park and the Botanical Garden. Herăstrău Park is located in the northern part of the city, around Lake Herăstrău, and includes the site the Village Museum.
One of its best known locations are Hard Rock Cafe Bucharest and Berăria H (one of the largest beer halls in Europe).
The Botanical Garden, located in the Cotroceni neighbourhood a bit west of the city centre, is the largest of its kind in Romania and contains over 10,000 species of plants (many of them exotic).


Perhaps the most prominent is the Palace of the Parliament, built in the 1980s during the rule of communist dictator Nicolae Ceaușescu. The largest Parliament building in the world, the palace houses the Romanian Parliament (the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate), as well as the National Museum of Contemporary Art. The building boasts one of the largest convention centres in the world.
Another landmark in Bucharest is Arcul de Triumf (The Triumphal Arch), built in its current form in 1935 and modelled after the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.

The Romanian Athenaeum building is considered a symbol of Romanian culture and since 2007 has been on the list of the Label of European Heritage sites. It was built between 1886 and 1888 by the architect Paul Louis Albert Galeron, through public funding.

Other cultural venues include the National Museum of Art of Romania, Grigore Antipa National Museum of Natural History, Museum of the Romanian Peasant, National History Museum and the Military Museum.

Traditional culture

Traditional Romanian culture continues to have a major influence in arts such as theatre, film, and music. Bucharest has two internationally renowned ethnographic museums, the Museum of the Romanian Peasant and the open-air Dimitrie Gusti National Village Museum, in King Michael I Park. It contains 272 authentic buildings and peasant farms from all over Romania.

The Museum of the Romanian Peasant was declared the European Museum of the Year in 1996. The museum preserves and exhibits numerous collections of objects and monuments of material and spiritual culture. The Museum of the Romanian Peasant holds one of the richest collections of peasant objects in Romania, its heritage being nearly 90,000 pieces, those being divided into several collections: ceramics, costumes, textiles, wooden objects, religious objects, customs, etc.

The Museum of Romanian History is another important museum in Bucharest, containing a collection of artefacts detailing Romanian history and culture from the prehistoric times, Dacian era, medieval times, and the modern era.
