On 8.06.2013 the Science Council in Halle presented for discussion its recommendations on higher education qualifications for the healthcare system.

100 year of courses in nursing and healthcare at universities in the heart of Germany between 1913 and 2013

On the 8th of June 1913 – exactly one hundred years ago – the study plan and examination regulations for “senior nurses, mother superiors and social welfare nurses” at the “Women’s University of Leipzig” were approved in cooperation with the Faculties of Medicine, Philosophy and probably also of Law at the University of Leipzig. The aim of the study plan is described as training nurses “who carry out their nursing duties with full understanding and who are able to comprehend the wide correlations in the larger fields of activity in which they will be working in the future.”

The Institute for Health and Nursing Sciences in the Faculty of Medicine at the University Halle-Wittenberg follows this tradition and sees it as their duty to continue these study courses, which had not survived the National Socialist era, probably due to the Jewish background of Hinrichsen, its sponsor, who was murdered in the Auschwitz KZ in 1942.

At the beginning of the second century of Health and Nursing Sciences at universities in the heart of Germany, the Symposium wishes not only to remember the first century but also to discuss the perspectives at the beginning the second century.
