ESNO PETITION - URGENT CALL FOR ACTION

As sent to AfPP from ESNO:
ESNO PETITION - VERY URGENT CALL
On behalf of ESNO we ask you for: “Your sustain in the interest of the sick patients within the European Community”.
Right now, politicians in Brussels are close to adopting a modernisation of the Directive 2005/36/EU, which refers to the recognition of professional qualifications. The EU Commission’s proposal was that the “admission to training for nurses shall be contingent upon completion of general education of 12 years”, which is already minimal requirement for all EU Member States except for two countries. Yet, the EU Committee for Environment, Public Health and Food Safety ENVI voted on 6th Nov. 2012 in opposition, stating “a general education of at least 10 years” would be sufficient.
Therefore, we ask you to sign the petition, to reject all amendments that would propose 10 years instead of 12 years as prerequisites for Nursing education.
The petition is also soon available as download at the ESNO website, fill the form and send it to our office. Forward this e-mail into your network. On behalf of Pascal Rod, President and Françoise Charnay-Sonnek, Vice President.
Thanks in advance for you support.
