5 Star Nursing Conference 2023

The referenced media source is missing and needs to be re-embedded.


Since 2017, the North Estonia Medical Centre and Tallinn Health Care College have been organising the international research and development conference "5 Star Nursing", which has become a yearly tradition, focusing on two benchmarks of Estonian nursing: the Standardised Nursing Language and the implementation of the Magnet® nursing quality model in practice.  The overall aim of the conference series is to discuss with innovative and ambitious developers in Estonian healthcare and external experts, sharing their success stories how these benchmarks can enhance research and development, quality of nursing care and patient safety.

Main topics: 

  • Education, research and implementation of Standardised Nursing Language (Nanda I, NIC and NOC);

  • Electronic Health Record;

  • Magnet®;

  • Nursing Quality.

The conference abstract book will be published online in the Proceedings, indexed with an ISBN code.
