German-Philippine School of Nursing
Institute for nurse training
Nursing staff will attend 8 hours of lessons per day over a period of 8 weeks whilst still in the Philippines. Each lesson lasts 45 minutes. To supplement their learning in class, our students will also have the option of consolidating their newly-acquired skills with our very own e-learning programme.
Classes involve role plays of real-life nursing situations in order to ensure that our students have both the nursing capabilities and language skills (consultation, positioning, preventative treatment, mobilisation etc.). Interim reports can be created with information on individual nursing students’ learning status and provided to new employers as required.
As training is coming to an end (during the last week of lessons), candidates will take a mock exam which involves completing both oral and practical elements in front of our teachers, including a practice-oriented case study. Individual talks are then held with our graduates to discuss their prospects based on how the teaching staff have assessed their potential.
Our communicative approach to education is a firm cornerstone of our teaching concept. As much of the teaching content is primarily fact-based, we aim to involve students in the learning process predominantly through work in small groups using an andragogical method involving the use of dialogue (e.g. subject-specific teaching stations). One of the overriding objectives of this process is to encourage students to act independently when it comes to nursing.
Outcomes are presented back to the class in individual/group presentations. Speakers can obtain feedback which will allow them to directly improve their performance. They’ll learn to work as a group, give joint feedback and deal with criticism. This collective learning experience will improve students’ self-awareness as nurses, broaden their areas of nursing activity and encourage them to be motivated.
