Abstract:
Nurses are hardly prepared to deal with environmental changes and with the serious impact that they have on the health of the population. There is also an important deficit in the sustainable management of sanitation centers due to the vast amount of waste that is generated. The project presented here is theNurSusTOOLKIT - A Teaching and Learning Resource for Sustainability in Nursing, funded by the European call Erasmus+, which aims to respond to this situation. The main objective is the improvement of training and the acquisition of competences for nursing studies through environmental sustainability and the development of a teaching and learning system based on the acquisition of innovative approaches and on the disseminations of good practices through the strategic use of information technologies. In this project, which is currently being implemented, researchers at four European universities aim to development of a web page for electronic learning as an open source of teaching and learning materials to improve competences in sustainability in nursing.
