The lack of young specialists and hard work are just some of the problems faced by nurses in our country. The challenges, as well as the successes of the medical sector, have been addressed within the National Conference of Nursing. This year, the event was organized in Falesti.

"I like it very much. Working with patients and it is very important that you like this profession. Even if it's hard to smile to behave well with the patient", Valeria Burghila said.
Even if there is a better place, nurses say things are going in the right direction: "The weights over the years have just seen how they have gone and gone in the past. We have came to a very good level the years I started working. "
