Europa Mobilität in der Ausbildung mit Erasmus über Bildungsakademie Pflege MHH
Start date: Jun 1, 2016, End date: May 31, 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The educational academy Nursing (BAP) is an autonomous vocational training´s department in the framework of the training academy of the Medical University Hanover, traditionally called MHH. The nursing school trains 200 students, the school for OTA/ATA 150. The MHH has in addition another 257 apprenticeships in varied health care professions. We have achieved till 2014 to send over 100 students, in their second year of training, over what was formerly called the Leonardo da Vinci project abroad in Europe. Since June of 2014 we have successfully applied for the funding in the new Erasmus+ program and are in self-governing the funding. The Erasmus appointee (Bledsoe/Stanze) of the nursing school could accordingly over the years acquire a multitude of very good contacts to hospital facilities in Ireland, Austria, France, United Kingdom, Spain and Malta, where regularly, that is to say, yearly our students went to their foreign internships or as the case may be their foreign practical. The number of students that the nursing school of the BAP could allocate to participate in the Program has continually increased. With the Erasmus+ project application 2015/2017 a goal has been set, to make it possible for at least 100 Trainees of the nursing school and German wide over the pool project, to participate in the exchange program in a European land of their choice. This goal will be achieved, because of January this year already 64 grants have been issued. The internships or practical’s intended duration is 4 - 7 weeks but dependent upon the application and assignment plans, the framework of the practical training and availability of the receiving organization.The emphasis by the chosen exchange facilities lies in acute nursing care clinics, in order to further already developed practical skills during the exchange. Our experience over the past ten years and the establish network with health care Clinics throughout Europe, as well as the tremendous response from vocational Training Institutions and Trainees , show the interest and need for this program. Before the internship or practical begins the Students are counseled and advised regarding the training abroad by the Erasmus appointee of the BAP nursing school. The Erasmus appointee will be available as a contact person throughout the internship if needed. During the foreign assignment the personal Mentor stands close meshed to the side of the Trainee, the extent of which is previously agreed between the receiving organization and the Erasmus appointee of the BAP who organizes the placement. Common educational objectives, goals and outcomes are evaluated. They are establishing between the sending and host organization, the documentation is according to ECEVT. In 2016 the BAP will for the third time provide nursing students from Innsbruck internships in the clinical setting through the Erasmus+ Mobility program. Furthermore, the BAP of the MHH would like to extend this offer to addition foreign facilities and encourage them to do so, there concrete plans with Austria and Ireland. For the first time this year we have specific request from Portugal and Spain. The foreign nursing students that take part in the Erasmus+ program at the MHH will be accompanied by a personal Mentor who has successfully completed an additional qualification’s course regarding Mentoring. Additionally the Erasmus appointee makes regular visits on the stations to insure the learning progress. The most important change with this project is the changeover from the Training agreement based on ECEVT to the learning agreement developed by the ECEVT Learning group. The learning outcome units according to the DQR and EQR standards will be part in the described development of the new curriculum. Goal is the comparable qualification and education within Europe. We are certain that all health care profession will be able to profit through international exchange students. At the same time our European neighbors will recognize, that even though health care professionals in Germany have a mostly vocational training, they are none-the-less highly qualified. The students at the MHH learn skills, methods, social-communication and personal expertise and through their foreign exchange they will enhance and extend their knowledge of their profession which can be transferred effectively and goal-oriented to all aspects of their daily work practice in the varied fields of their occupation in health care and augment the theoretical instruction of the their school. This is to be supported by the exchange of the educational personnel. The BAP at the MHH strives for a professional, cultural and linguistically exchange on the local, regional, national and international level. This enables our students to recognize the possibilities and chances that a united Europe offers, as well as the flexibility for their future carrier opportunities.
