In March we launched the new course „Nurse at Sea“. The goal out of this is to get Nurses best prepared to work at Sea, mainly on Cruiseships. As we experienced – preparation is the most promising factor to get turnover rates decreased, professional success and satisfaction increased with benefit to all people involved in a working environment which is hardly to anticipate. Since March the awareness has risen rapidly by nurses, Cruiselines, educational institutions and the media. Here an example from the online-Magazine „Lebenslang“ (sorry!, in German only) including an interview with Ramona Herrfurth who has been working as a Nurse on AIDA vessels for years.
