The Department of Nursing at Semmelweis University was founded in 1975 as a part of the College of Health Care of the Postgraduate Medical School (now Semmelweis University Faculty of Health Sciences). It was the first college in Hungary to award diplomas to health care teachers in 1977.


Nursing M.Sc. is a three-semester part-time programme at Semmelweis University based on a former bachelor degree in nursing. During their studies, students learn the planning of nursing in all areas of health care, the organisation of nursing work, teaching the basics of nursing and health care, organising nursing research, and supervising quality assurance in nursing care.

The previous members of the Department’s staff supported projects like the development of a nursing curriculum with the introduction of distance education methodology into nursing training programmes (in collaboration with Columbia University, School of Nursing (USA) in 1995-98 and a Hungarian-Canadian nursing programme for a methodology and model of prior learning assessment and recognition (PLAR) of nurse-candidates (Douglas College, Canada) in 1999-2000.
