The curriculum indicates the subjects for the degree and their nature (basic, required, electives, etc.), the number of credits for each subject, etc. Topics are divided into subjects, which in turn are organized into modules. In addition, it includes practical information for the student's academic life.
Module I: Basic Nursing Education
The human being is studied as a comprehensive whole. The module also includes the core values and beliefs of nursing and its ethical and deontological aspects. At the same time, it includes basic content related to beginning research and health education.
Module II: Nursing Science
Includes the basics of nursing discipline and of the profession and its historical development. Addresses nursing care for people in different stages of life. Each stage of life is structured by areas of functionality (functional health patterns). In each stage of life the care of healthy and ill patients is approached from the perspective of their health experience. The nursing process is used to organize the content within this conceptual framework. With this orientation, it is hoped that students will be able to synthesize the knowledge and then put it into practice and provide overall care to people in the different contexts they find themselves in. All of this also seeks to provide a more humanistic and holistic conceptualization of nursing. Some more specific contexts of nursing practice are also addressed, such as public health nursing and community nursing.
Module III: Supervised Internships and Final Year Project
Supervised internships (E-Practicum) are carried out in the form of clinical rotation at health centers, hospitals and other care centers to allow students to integrate into professional practice the knowledge, skills and attitudes of nursing, based on principles and values associated with the competences described in the general objectives and in the subjects that make up the degree program. The Final Year Project will also be completed by synthesizing theoretical and clinical learning.
Final Year Project
Required, worth 6 ECTS credits. Will be completed by synthesizing theoretical and clinical learning. This work will be carried out under the supervision of professors/supervisors at primary, specialized and public healthcare centers accredited for university education. During the project, the student must also develop competences related to information search and retrieval, organization of documentation and preparation of the work in a way that is suitable for the audience. This competence is oriented toward evaluation of the competences associated with the degree program.
Elective subjects (12 ECTS credits) allow students to acquire more in-depth knowledge in their professional competences related to health sciences and other branches of humanities. This also includes credits earned for participation in different activities (up to 6 ECTS credits)
