Nursing Services


The basic requirements of people are identical, bur there are no two identical people. That’s why the nurse must evaluate the individual needs of the patient and provide an appropriate care.

Today, effective and efficient service concept has come to the forefront in meeting the health needs of the society. Effective and efficient service is possible by providing all health workers with scientific developmnets in the same direction and standard. The role of he nurse in providing effective health care services is undoubtedly of great importance. The International Council of Nurses (ICN)  defines the nurse as:nurse contributes to the developments and implementation of the therapeutic and educational plans of the healthcare team that help to protect and improve the health of the individual, family and community and participate in rehabilitation in case of illness. In recent years, there have been profound developments in nursing education and practice in the world and in our country. In terms of our country, the Nursing Law in 2007 and the Nursing Regulation published in 2011 make important contributions to the professional developments.

While we are touching the lives of our patients as nurses who have adopted professionalism to reach our goal, we do not forget that we offer services to people.
