Our Work in Italy

Updated: Oct 24, 2023

We asked our team in Italy about the challenges their nursing population faces and the changes they wish to see. Keep reading to hear their responses in their own words:


What are the three most challenging things for nurses in your country?

  1. Being recognised in the responsibility of patient care: increasing the social and economic value attributed to the nurse’s profession.

  2. Being recognised in the responsibilities of the nursing services (at the middle and top level): being involved at higher levels of decisional processes

  3. Developing policies capable to face the dramatic national shortage of nurses as also exacerbated by the lack of attractivity among the younger generation

  4. Debating the ethical principles of recruitment: nurses’ migration/ recruitment from “poor” countries

  5. Investing more in primary care: in organisational, care and educational models: community houses, skills development….

How can we highlight nursing and mental health issues in your country?

  1. Promoting interprofessional collaboration, good workplaces in order to prevent any additional (an avoidable) burden on nurses

  2. Debating and experimenting different forms of support across Health Care Trusts in order to investigate their effectiveness towards their capacity to sustain and promote a full wellbeing among nurses

  3. Underlining that better nursing care can improve the quality of the life of citizens; poor quality of care due to the burden of nurses may be prevented by a system capable of expressing attentiveness towards the nurses

What changes would you like to see for nurses in your country?

  1. increasing the nursing competence in decision-making and patient’s outcome orientation

  2. strong development and recognition of clinical specialties in the nursing field

  3. a strong recognition (also economical) of advanced competences of nurses, valuing also the education attended at the university level, by following the second (Master) and the third (PhD) circle of education

  4. increasing the number of nurse managers and providing their presence at different levels of organization, thus in the best position to influence the quality of care; strengthening the education and leadership of nurses and include an "autonomous/independent" nursing voice in decisions about the future of health systems and policies.

  5. Making visible the contribution of nurses
