Berlin & Brandenburg: Nursing council: good interest in nursing training


Berlin (dpa / bb) – After the reform of nursing training, the Berlin-Brandenburg state nursing council was satisfied with the demand. The influx in the context of the pandemic was good, the number of applicants better than in previous years, said chairwoman Juliane Blume on Monday in a hearing in the health committee of the House of Representatives. She spoke of restrictions as a result of the pandemic, for example for practical training in outpatient care. Representatives of the education campus for health professions and the nursing school association also mentioned a teacher shortage.

State Secretary Barbara König (SPD) from the Senate Department for Health, Nursing and Equal Opportunities said that after almost a year of experience with generalist training, the numbers are in order: With 1900 training contracts, they are roughly at the level of previous years. That could be seen for a completely new training, said König.

In the reformed training for nurses, care for the elderly, nursing and child care are brought together. The lessons are more practical, so that everyday work life is perceived as less challenging than before, said Jannik Müller from the education campus. The start of the first courses in spring was also affected by the pandemic, and some trainees started directly in practice.
