Notice of admission

The course in brief


The course aims to train nurses with citizen- and family-centered care and clinical skills in line with the best scientific evidence. To this end, it is organized in such a way as to create maximum synergy and integration between theoretical disciplines and learning in clinical settings and uses student-centered active teaching to develop the relational, human and ethical skills necessary for the profession.

Learning by doing

At the University's Advanced Simulation Center - SIMAV - students experience situations that they will experience in the clinical setting, through simulations of real cases with mannequins or actors and under the supervision of tutors. Subsequent debriefing in small groups allows them to review the situation via video recording, so that they can relive the dynamics enacted and pick up pointers and suggestions.

In these situations, which are excellent for learning, students can also experiment with their own interpersonal and communication skills in difficult or emotionally involving situations and their role with patients, relatives, colleagues or the multiprofessional team.

Professional outlets

Nurses carry out their activities in the hospital facilities of the National Health Service, in accredited private facilities and at home. They can also carry out their activities in freelance mode, activating all the procedures required by law.

1) What work does a graduate in Nursing do?
. A nurse is a health care worker who, having a qualifying university degree and professional registration, is responsible for general nursing care (Ministry of Health Decree No. 739 of September 14, 1994). The main functions are disease prevention, care of the sick and disabled of all ages, and health education. A graduate in Nursing practices in private facilities, in the community, in hospitals, and in research (a constantly evolving field), or may work on a freelance basis.
2) What does a graduate in Nursing not do?
. The Nurse Practitioner does not make medical diagnoses or prescribe drugs. The Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree is a three-year bachelor's degree qualifying for the profession of nursing, so he/she can do this profession and no other.

3) What kind of motivations do those who choose to graduate in Nursing have?
. The work of the graduate in Nursing is directed toward taking care of the person/patient in order to meet their needs. Being a Nurse also means continually putting oneself back on the line and working on one's self-esteem, learning to relate by creating empathic relationships, and developing professional curiosity. Being useful to others is definitely something one "feels inside," so being a nurse is not a profession one chooses solely because it gives one access to "a secure job." The Bachelor of Science in Nursing program cannot be chosen lightly; it is a degree program that requires commitment to study and many hours of internship, and subsequently, the profession of Nursing is a tough profession. Those who choose the Bachelor of Science in Nursing course do not need to have particularly strong foundations in mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology; everything preparatory to the professionalizing subjects will be taught during the first year of the degree program. The nurse must have an aptitude for listening, operate with science and conscience, and be a point of reference for the sick person.
4) Where can I get a job with a Bachelor's Degree in Nursing?
. The job opportunities that a graduate in Nursing can access are many and varied. The nurse works in all types of health care and diagnostic facilities, both public and private, and in the community. In addition, one can continue one's career, after attending a Master's Degree, in the areas of research, with a doctorate, and teaching.
5) What types of users does a graduate in Nursing work with?
. The types of individuals with whom the nurse works are varied: from the healthy individual, on whom they work through health education interventions in the field of prevention, to the individual with health problems of varying complexity, both chronic and acute.
6) In what public institutions can a graduate in Nursing work?
. Basically in all health care facilities where the professional figure of a Nurse Practitioner is required and in the University, after obtaining a Master's Degree.

7) What outlets does a graduate in Nursing have in the private sector?
. In all private health care facilities that guarantee the regulations related to the professional profile. The private sector is constantly increasing and consequently so is the demand for nurses.
8) What advanced studies can a Graduate in Nursing have access to?
. A graduate in Nursing can enter first-level Master's degree, Master's degree, and, after obtaining the Master's degree, second-level Master's degree and PhD.
9) How likely is it that a graduate in Nursing will find employment?
. The chances of finding employment in the public or private sector are very high.

10) What career opportunities does a Graduate in Nursing have?
A graduate in Nursing has career opportunities within health care facilities, both public and private, and in universities.
