The hospital provides both general and specialized nursing care to its patients on a 24 hour basis. Kauno klinikos is a cutting-edge hospital with a diverse culture that values excellence, innovation, interdisciplinary collaboration, clinical quality and patient care that is upheld by the highest standards of corporate responsibility and nursing practice. Our nursing team is dedicated to the art and science of the profession. Every day we continue on our journey to excellence.


EDUCATION

In a continued effort to realize our vision, our entire nursing staff at Kauno klinikos is confident in their abilities – and steadfastly committed to self-improvement and lifelong learning. In cooperation with Lithuanian University of Health Sciences we provide generous continuing education benefits. The hospital also offers our nursing specialists the opportunity to acquire and maintain the skills they need to be the best possible nurse.
Our contribution to nursing is enhanced even more when the students have the benefit of hospital nurses expertise.
Nursing specialists actively participate and lead patient education programs. Currently we have 11 patient education programs approved (for children and adults). These programs provide benefit to the patients and care givers.
We believe the future of nursing is in the synergy between service and education.  We are responsible for educating patients, families, nursing peers, colleagues and students.

Nursing research has successfully facilitated unit-based programs that benefit our patients. We are committed to maintaining and continually improving the safety and quality of nursing care through the ongoing monitoring, evaluation of outcomes and research.
