Bucharest and Romania.

Carol Davila Nursing College is the first private school in Bucharest and in Romania after 1990, when the communist system was eradicated. The school was established and led until 2008 by Dr. Mioara Mincu, a great personality in the medical field. In a few years, Ms. Mincu developed a whole network of independent “Carol Davila” sanitary schools in 15 Romanian cities.

European Nursing Module Concept
The main purposes of this module are:
– Encouraging the students to achieve an extensive practice experience.
– Motivating the students to perform nursing at European standards.
– Supporting the students in achieving and share knowledge and European experiences.
– Encouraging the inter-cultural communication.
– Offering opportunities to understand the true value of nursing.
– Offering opportunities to share with their colleagues the importance of the experience gathered during the exchange period.
– Discovering the influences of culture through nursing.
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.
ENM Annual Conferences
Our representatives participated in the ENM Annual Conferences and in 2004 Carol Davila Nursing College was the organizer of the event.
This year our school will be represented again at the 20th European Nursing Module Network Management Conference, which is to be held on 25th to 28th April 2012 at the University of Brighton, UK, with new proposals for cooperation.
