Nursing Education Department – Training & Development

Being a university hospital, education is one of FUH’s main pillars. Training is not a luxury, but a significant element of being a healthcare professional. The science of medicine and nursing is extremely dynamic and to keep up with all the developments, the healthcare professionals need to spend ample time in educating themselves.

FUH has all the resources to enhance the constant development of nursing teams. An AHA advanced training center, skills labs, and accredited CME programs in combination with a state-of-the-art online competency system allows us to access the most up-to-date evidence-based practices.

The FUH Nursing Education and Training Center not only focuses on knowledge and skills, but also on being competent and having the right attitude.

We believe that going to work happy and comfortable is the ultimate component to guarantee excellence in patient-centered care.

Therefore, we value the development of social skills, stress management, and self-confidence. This is in alignment with the Nursing Shared Governance model. Over the years, with our Medical University and Nursing College, FUH Nursing Department will focus on fresh graduates and advanced specialty training for all fields in nursing.

Milestones in Nursing and Nursing Care​

Magnet Recognition Program is the gold standard given to hospitals for quality patient care, nursing excellence, and innovations in professional nursing practice. To achieve the Magnet Recognition, FUH Nursing Department must pass a rigorous and extensive review process , which requires profound contribution and commitment from leadership and staff.

The FUH Nursing Department has been working from day one to accomplish this recognition. For nurses, Magnet Recognition means development and professional advancement within the hospital and clinical environment, which can empower them and provide them with greater autonomy at the bedside.

Magnet Recognition provides a framework for excellence in patient outcomes, which benefits the whole organization. The Magnet culture creates an environment of partnership and co-ordination among the entire inter-professional team to transform care through collaboration, innovation, and quality patient care.

For patients, Magnet hospitals provide them with the absolute best and outstanding care, delivered by the most talented and competent nurses and inter-professional caregivers. Research demonstrates that Magnet recognition provides specific benefits to health care organizations and their communities, such as:

  • Higher patient satisfaction with better nurse communications, prompt availability of help, and quicker receipt of discharge information
