Education and research

The Organisation organises, coordinates and supports professional education of its members, and for this reason establishes links with professional institutions and individuals.


Sports and leisure

The programme of the Organisation aims at preserving health and preventing illnesses, as well as encouraging healthy lifestyles of its members and others; thus, we contribute to quality, efficient and safe nursing and midwifery care and to the quality of life in general. 


Divisions and branches

Activities within different divisions are organised at regular meetings of the Executive Committee which has six members who prepare professional programmes and other forms of socialising.
