NORLYS
 
Norlys is a nursing network the main aim of which is to widen and deepen professional knowledge, skills and the way of thinking by enhancing student and teacher mobility among its member institutions/countries and to develop common intensive courses. The emphases are on increasing placements for students doing clinical studies and on developing intensive courses with active participation of teachers and students from its member institutions. The network promotes both student and teacher exchange. Student exchange mainly involves short-term clinical placements at partner schools abroad.  Teachers have a chance to visit partner schools and to spread new learning methods and share their research projects.
The work of the network is funded per year at a time: the activities of the next period will be funded if the activities of the previous period have been successfully carried out and the action plan and funding application for the following period have been submitted.
