Eine italienische Krankenschwester in Dresden – Una infermiera italiana a Dresda



Ciao Chiara, come stai? cosa stai facendo in questo momento?

In realtà non c’è stata una motivazione particolare che mi ha spinto a partire. Di certo la voglia di vivere un’esperienza all’estero. E’ capitata questa offerta lavorativa che offriva un corso di lingua e un lavoro per cui ho studiato.

How to become a nurse in Italy

To become a nurse in Italy it is necessary to attend three years of university: each year is divided between theoretical lessons and practical internship at the hospital. To pass the year, you have both exams and practical tests. The topics of study are the most various: from anatomy to pathology, communication, psychology, law of nursing, surgery, medicine, ICU nursing ecc. At the end of the three years you have to prepare an essay (thesis) on a topic you can choose: you have a final big exam (qualification test) and then you can call yourself a nurse. How is the profession of nurse in Italy? Mainly, in Italy nurses prepare and give drugs to the patients, medicate surgical wounds, somewhere they still clean up the patients: they even do other practical things like taking blood samples and  help and collaborate with doctors. There are many differences between units. The profession of nurse is not very well remunerated and there are still a lot of fights between doctors and nurses. More over, the common vision of nurse in Italy is very stereotyped because most of the people think that they just clean up people and are submitted to doctors. The goal of the next years is to improve the status of nurses making the common people understand that nursing is a independent profession. Another big target is to change the nurses old style mind putting the patients at the centre of the assistance instead of just caring about practical and predetermined performances.
