The Degree Programme in Nursing allows graduates to become health care professionals responsible for nursing care and to exercise a socially useful profession, through the acquisition of a solid training in clinical-welfare, relational, and educational disciplines. Job opportunities range from personal care to health education and prevention, from teaching to research.

Programme contents

The training of the nurse professional is characterised by theoretical and clinical-assistance learning (traineeship). The main discipline of the Degree Programme is Nursing, which studies how to meet the needs of the healthy person and with health problems. The teaching activity is carried out through both traditional (plenary lectures) and innovative (interactive activities in small groups) methods. The internship is carried out in public and private structures of the provincial territory, with the supervision of tutors and internship guides. Before the internship, students attend educational workshops, where mannequins and medical devices are used to simulate the nursing procedures learned in theory. Under the Erasmus programme, students can take 12 weeks of internship at universities in countries such as Finland, France, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Turkey.

Job opportunities

At the end of the training programme, students obtain the degree in Nursing, thus becoming the health professionals responsible for general nursing care, with educational functions in the field of disease prevention and functions of care for sick and disabled people of all ages. To practice the profession of Nurse, students must obtain the university degree and register in the professional order. This profession can be carried out in health facilities, public or private, and/ or in the territorial and home care, as employees or freelance professionals. The Degree Programme in Nursing provides direct access to the Master's Degree Programme in Nursing and Midwifery Sciences with no credit obligations. Bachelor graduates may also access Vocational Master Programmes (1st level).
