My name is Frantisek Nano. I have been working in anaesthesiology and intensive care for almost five years. Nowadays, I work at the I. Clinic of anaesthesiology and intensive medicine of the Faculty of Medicine of Komensky University and University hospital Bratislava in Bratislava, Slovakia. It is the great place for my professional grow.
During my bachelor studies of nursing care, I took apart one semester at the Charles University in Prague where I was impressed by the world of anaesthesiology and intensive care. Because of that, I decided to work in this area.
I have been always interested in nursing care research and its outcomes because I believe that the future of nursing care, especially the critical care nursing, will be based on the scientific evidence.
It is the main reason I decided to join the Section of anaesthesiology and intensive care of Slovak chamber of nurses and midwifes.
I hope that our vocational section can be a relevant part of EfCCNa´s community and bring a new view on current questions and challenges of CCN.

Section of nurses working in anaesthesiology and intensive care has its own structure: voted Head of section, 5 voted members of the section committee and members of the section (voluntary, cost-free).
Other activities of the section and its members include proceedings of abstracts and contributions with ISBN from every congress, contributions in domestic and foreign professional journals and on the web of Slovak chamber of nurses and midwifes.It is not only about formal side of our work. We keep the family of CCN professionals in our region together, offer them opportunities to grow professionally, give them chance to confront their opinions, gain new views in anaesthesiology and intensive care and create relationships between each other for next cooperation.

The EfCCNa is looking forward to a good cooperation.
