Anatomy and physiology provide an understanding of the human body and its functions, while psychology and neuropsychiatry enable appropriate interaction with the caregiver.

General clinical and pediatric nursing sciences are based on priority health problems. They are implemented in surgical, critical care, medical, chronic care, and disability so as to enable the student to address specific clinical care pathways.

Nursing in research enables the student to learn critical thinking and to apply evidence-based procedures in everyday life, including in the international arena.

Numerous seminar and teaching activities are available for the student to participate in to deepen the holistic view of the person and caring.
