About us

medea_jgharkava.jpgAt a time of fundamental health care reform and in the face of increasingly complex health problems, nurses are increasingly being seen as a key resource in health reform strategies.

Nursing is both an art and a science. It requires the understanding and the application in practice of specific nursing knowledge and skills which are research- and/or evidence-based. It draws on knowledge and techniques derived from the humanities, from physical, biological and behavioral sciences, from management and leadership theories and from theories of education (WHO 1996a)

The Department of Nursing Education (at present, Professional Educational Programmes)  was established in 2007 as an integral part of
Tbilisi State Medical University

Based on recommendation of WHO European Strategy for Nursing and Midwifery Education our four years BC programs in Nursing and Midwifey fosters excellence in professional nursing knowledge and research through innovative education.

The Midwifery BS program is founded by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs (through the MATRA programme) and implemented by ETC Foundation (the Netherlands) and HERA XXI (Georgia) in conjunction with the International Confederation of Midwives (ICM, in the Hague), Rotterdam University of Midwives (RUM/VAR) and Tbilisi State Medical University (TSMU)
We also have two years educational programs for pharmacy assistants and biomedical equipment technicians (BMETs). All programs are approved by National Center of Accreditation of Education.
