International Project DEN
of Nursing in Celje is a project partner of the Erasmus+ project: »Digital
Education in Nursing« (DEN).
The overall purpose of the project "Digital education in nursing"
project (DEN) is to modernize the existing curriculum for nursing students by developing
digital modules regarding lectures/examinations into new forms of education.
The project will run for 24 months and the expected results are supposed to
have long-term positive effects on nursing education in the EU. The pandemic
has been the reason why the traditional academic education in nursing has
forced to be transformed into digital forms without the lecturers being given
the opportunity to adapt the pedagogy to digital education. The lecturers need
support to develop their pedagogical skills from the traditional way to a more
digital way in order to maintain the required and necessary high quality in
nurse education. The traditional way is not sufficient, or applicable, to meet
today's requirements especially not for satisfactory examinations.
A European collaboration
consortium consists of five partner organisations representing five EU
countries (Croatia, Macedonia, Slovenia, Serbia and Sweden). All partner
organizations have a strong tradition in nursing education and have already
successfully collaborated in a European (Erasmus +) project. All partners
organisations have worked with digital nursing education at a different level
during pandemic 2020.
