Aiming at bringing up nurses who offer healthcare services in an innovative, cooperative, questioning and humanitarian concept at universal standards in order to develop and improve the health of the society, Dokuz Eylül University, school of Nursing was established in 1992. Programmes for undergraduate, Msc and PhD degrees are now implemented at our school. The school has ten departments, namely surgical diseases, pediatrics, gynecology and obstetrics, public health, fundamentals of nursing, internal medicine, oncology, psychiatry, emergency and intensive care nursing and management in nursing.

The school is a member of the Consortium of Institutes of Higher Education in Health and Rehabilitation (COHEHRE), the European network of Nursing in Higher Education (ENNE) and the Thematic European Nursing Network (TENN). Our students and lecturers participate in such international projects as the Care of the Elderly from a European Perspective, the Complementary Care in Healthcare Practice (COCHA) and the International Course on Intercultural Competencies (ICIC).

The school has undertaken a leading role in terms of the developments in the field of nursing with its vision and training program regarding the training of nurses. The Nursing school organizes a lot of nursing courses. Some of them are diabetes nursing course, intensive nursing course, education for nurses course, childbirth education class course, ECG course, NST course, burnout and coping with stress course. The school’s cooperation with the hospital is one of the places where the school-hospital cooperation is experienced in the best way. There are a lot of nurses going to Europe. 255,311 tourists came to Turkey in 2009. 6,707 immigrants live in İzmir. Immigrants come to live in Turkey from Europe, Asia and Arabia. They need nursing care. That is why Turkish nurses need to become aware of culturally different attitudes and practice. 'TraNSforM' project will be helpful in facilitating an increased awareness of intercultural competence of Turkish nurses and it will help to increase integration of EU health care workplace towards the accession of Turkey to the EU.
