International Research Projects

At the Department of Nursing in Odense one of our focuses is to breach out and make international partnerships which can help us develop

Modern nursing must be based on the latest knowledge and technology and the best practices as they unfold right now in the best hospitals.

At University College Lillebaelt the nursing education is based on academic disciplines in health with nursing science, health science, natural science, humanities and social science.

At the Department of Nursing, Odense we are committed to deliver the most up-to-date and thorough higher education we can and to this end the Department of Nursing works closely with the University of Southern Denmark in research and development areas.

The staff is educated at Ph.D. and master levels and several lecturers are Ph.D. students at the moment.

The Department of Nursing works internationally and is part of several international collaborations concerning strategic partnerships and research within the field of nursing, education and affaires related to international exchange.

At the same time the Department of Nursing has a strong network in the professional nursing community, not least with Odense’s University Hospital.

Capture the Impact of international clinical exchanges for student nurses from three countries

A strong Erasmus partnership has developed between European universities with Pre-registration nursing students undertaking Erasmus clinical and academic module exchanges.

In Mid-september 2014, Mette Bro Jansen from University College Lillebaelt and Dorthe Nielsen from the University of Southern Denmark visited the University of Worcester to meet and plan with Kath Baume and Sue Lilleyman from the Institute of Health and Society.

The meeting in Worcester was to review the pilot project study data which provided stimulating discussion and insight into the students’ experience. The data highlights the personal and professional development opportunities for students undertaking an Erasmus exchange and will further inform the research study that is due to commence in 2015.
