About the Programme
Maltepe University School of Nursing, which was established in 1997 but suspended for ten years, started undergraduate education in nursing again in 2007 and offers a four- year bachelor’s degree programme.
The School curriculum has specific characteristics which allow students to be initiative nurses who have holistic and humanistic philosophy, communicate effectively, be compatible with teamwork, be able to create or keep up with changes to improve quality, be able to reach up- to -date information and use new technology. In curriculum, besides the basic courses which offer improving, preventive, curative and rehabilitative health care, students have medical and social science courses as well. By means of elective art courses like music, painting and photography it is targeted to improve the perception and understanding skills of students.
In the fourth year, students are prepared for their professional lives with a one-year internship programme. For this reason, each student has a one- semester training in intensive care units. In the second semester of the internship programme, students receive education in the field related with their interest, so they are given support in the area they would like to work after graduation.
Clinical practice is an important part of nursing education. Maltepe University has a modern hospital where nursing and medical school students are able to have the benefit of a clinical practice. As well as the university hospital, learners have training in some other hospitals’ various units for clinical practice and thus they have the opportunity to learn most of the nursing management methods.
Our students will be able to benefit from student exchange programme opportunities since our programme has been prepared in the direction of European Credit Transfer System.
Two symposiums were held on May 12, 2010 “The City of ISTANBUL, Where the Nursing Torch Was Lit” and on May 13, 2011 “Equality in Health” and “Art in Nursing”.
Our School offers Paediatric Nursing and Surgical Nursing Mater programmes.
