Care for Europe Erasmus+ KA2 project

Care for Europe Erasmus+ KA2 Strategic Partnerships project aims to internationalise nursing courses through a better integration of incoming nursing students during their clinical placements. Nursing professions are increasingly concerned with globalisation and it is therefore important to train our future nurses in multicultural teamwork so that they acquire intercultural competences already during their studies. The cultural diversity of the four participants located in four different European regions: France, Hungary, Spain and Finland, will result in rich exchanges allowing the comparison of visions, cultures and care practices.

  • Implementation date9/1/2020 - 12/31/2022

Background and objectives of the project

Care for Europe Erasmus+ KA2 project aims to internationalise nursing courses through a better integration of incoming nursing students during their clinical placements. Digital material created in this project will also provide virtual reality educational experiences for nursing students. Nursing professions are increasingly concerned with globalisation and it is therefore important to train our future nurses in multicultural teamwork so that they acquire intercultural competences already during their studies. The cultural diversity of the four participants located in four different European regions: France, Hungary, Spain and Finland, will result in rich exchanges allowing the comparison of visions, cultures and care practices.

In order to achieve this integration goal and implement the project, the four partners co-create innovative pedagogical tools that can be used by the following professionals:

  • a MOOC to support the integration of international nursing students into a clinical placement applying 360° images and VR technology
  • a good practices guide for professionals who intervene before, during and after a clinical placement
  • short films recounting the experiences of incoming nursing students who carry out a clinical placement

The digital material created in the project aims to describe working as a nurse as well as clinical environments providing a realistic nurse’s job description in the receiving country.

Target groups

The project targets a wide range of groups from local to international level including:

  • incoming international nursing students
  • clinical mentors and professionals who intervene before, during and after a clinical placement
  • lecturers and professionals in higher education institutions with a nursing department
  • cooperation networks of the project partners and participants in multiplier events
