Abstract

Nursing education in Europe and North America was reviewed, together with European Commission directives and regulations and pertinent World Health Organization documents. The new practical models for education are preferred. The aim of our research is to analyze the effect of education of nurses with faculty degree using one actual health activity. A total of 65 students in their third year of theoretical and practical courses were included. We made the evaluation before and after two months of the education. The analyses of the responses in the questionnaire showed a significant increase of the theoretical (p<0.05) and practical knowledge (p<0.01). In order to evaluate the effectiveness of the education, it is necessary to choose an educational model that will offer reflexive information from the students. Choosing current medical topic and following the standards of prevention in treatment is one important segment of the health system in every country.

Key words: Education model, nursing practice, medical standards.
