In Romania, nurses are part of all structures of the Romanian health services system and are the largest group of healthcare workers. Educational pathways for nurses include both three-year (Nursing College) and four-year (University) programs. The four-year option was started in 2003 in compliance with Romania’s EU accession agreement. Romania offers universal healthcare to all citizens.
