The Dutch Centre considers it important to teach the history of nursing as part of nurses’ training. To achieve this, it engages in an intensive dialogue with teachers to learn their precise needs in order to teach this subject.

We have developed an educational programme corresponding to their needs and expectations, and new material for students is constantly being developed as part of our website.

At the request of the Ministry of Public Health, the Dutch Centre was also involved, from 2009 to 2013, in devising teaching programmes for pre-vocational secondary school (VMBO) pupils.
