The level of knowledge gradually increases in all branches of health sciences and the delivery of health and care services also evolves quickly. Nurses need to adapt to such rapid changes in order to keep up with the inherent dynamism required in nursing care services.
As is the case with all professions, critical thinking is one of the basic components in nursing practices. Critical thinking not only adds dynamism to nursing care, but it also boosts the quality and efficiency of services.
Any and all education support required by our nurses to create a patient-oriented and performance-based management and service approach, to coordinate the healthcare and perform the basic healthcare service is provided by the nursing care services management in line with the principle of equal opportunity.
Education is formulated, executed and reviewed by professional education and development nurses at our hospital. Planned discussions with nursing department managers, precise surveys, employment of cutting edge devices and equipment, sentinel event notices, assessment of nurses who have decided to participate in the education process, mandating of eduction goals; and education schedules and curriculum organization are all executed in line with our pre-established schedule.
