In the EU, they are going to downgrade the minimal standard for nurses education with 2 years - SIGN the PETITION
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.
