Kristina Zeigert, university lecturer in nursing, has been responsible for the carrying out of the project's examinations in Halmstad.
"The idea with the examination is to guarantee the quality of the education in Sweden. The exam implies that the same demands are required irrespective of which institute you belong to. The students must feel safe in knowing that they have the clinical competence which is required in this occupation," says Kristina.
The examination has been evaluated during the autumn of 2010 of all the institutes that have NKSE (National Clinical Final Examination) which includes, of course, Halmstad. The results show that all the participants are happy, from the students, doctors, examiners to the nurses responsible for grading. All groups agree that the examination corresponds with the targets a newly examined nurse is expected to reach.
"The students feel that they obtain proof of their knowledge; therefore they feel more confident in themselves. The students have an objectively independent examination", says Kristina Zeigert, one of the five researchers behind the evaluations.
"This is also an important indicator for us at the University, - how well have we succeeded in getting across the required knowledge? Which areas do we need to improve? " says Kristina Zeigert.
The evaluations show the test has contributed to a closer contact between the institutes and the Health Care.
"People talk about knowledge in a new way. The meeting of teaching institutes and working institutes enabling us to discuss the important issues of the education has been a major success", says Kristina Zeigert.
