The Degree Programme is aimed at training professionals who independently carry out activities addressed to the prevention, care and protection of individual and collective health. The nurse is responsible for the care of people at all stages of life, the way people react to illness and the outcomes produced by the care provided. Nurses are the closest professionals to the needs of individual people and the population. Exercising this profession requires personal aptitude, motivation and rigorous human and scientific training.

Programme contents

The training programme has a three-year duration. The teaching methods include theoretical plenary lectures and tutorial teaching to small groups, both in nursing laboratories and internships. Data activities in the preclinical laboratory (prior to the placement) allow students to experiment, through simulations, the skills that they will need to perform on the real patient during clinical practice. Students carry out the internship alongside and under the supervision of a nurse tutor, an experienced professional working in hospitals throughout the Reggio Emilia region. The degree programme also offers teaching activities in the form of seminars and long internships (3 months) at foreign university locations and short internships (2 weeks) within European projects.

Job opportunities

Graduate nurses, after registration in the professional register, can find employment in Italy and in all the countries of the European Economic Community, and can practise the profession as an employee in hospitals, public and private healthcare residences or as a freelance professional as an individual and/or associate. Nurses can work in any nursing context, independently and/or in integration with other health professionals, actively participate in the improvement of nursing care within work, project or research groups and further develop their education through postgraduate studies.
