Dear future colleagues,

Nursing is a professional health discipline that protects the health of the individual at every stage of life, provides care and counselling when needed. In this sense, nursing supports both the human and the family while performing its professional responsibilities.

Antalya Bilim University Faculty of Health Sciences Nursing Department was established with the President's decision, published in the Official Gazette on 06.02.2020, and started its educational journey that we aim to be full of success in 2020-2021 with its first students. Our educational philosophy is based on a value on human, sensitivity, responsibility, justice, equality and respect. Our training content, which we have created in line with these values, aims to teach being a sensitive and responsible individual as well as being a professional member of nursing. As the nursing department with our young and well-equipped staff; our goal is to train -by providing an education of high quality- nurses who will be sensitive to human life, adopt lifelong learning as a principle, represent and develop nursing at the national and international level and make a difference in care services. Our basic effort is that our graduates will be nurses who lead to change with their critical thinking and leadership skills. With this understanding, we are happy to train you with all our academic and administrative staff.

University education is the first step in the basis of self-discovery, self-realization and professional identity formation and it is a very special journey of life. I thank you for choosing our university, our department and us in this journey and I say "Welcome" to the Antalya Bilim University Nursing Department family. As a whole team, I emphasize that we are here for you when you need and wish you a university life that you will remember with pleasure.

Best regards.

Prof. Dr. Ayla GÜRSOY

Head of Nursing Department
