Bachelor's Degree in Nursing (affiliated schools)

Presentation

The Bachelor's Degree in Nursing trains up general-practice nurses, who have the appropriate scientific and human qualities to be able to identify and assess persons' health needs and act accordingly.

The demographic changes taking place in recent years in this country have led to more and more people becoming vulnerable and dependent. At the same time average hospital stays have shortened, while treatments have gained in complexity. All of this goes to increase the need for new nursing professionals.

 

The schools that teach this degree have a long tradition in nursing studies and close ties with prestigious hospitals at home and abroad.

The Bachelor's Degree in Nursing trains its students to provide strategies for health promotion and prevention of diseases, and to assist patients in their recovery or help them to die with dignity. Within the health system, nursing professionals share tasks with other health professionals in terms of planning, organisation, management and assessment of the health system.

Each school offers the chance to specialise in an area of nursing. The Gimbernat School of Nursing and Physiotherapy (EUI Gimbernat) offers specialisation in Innovation and Management of Diversity, Nursing, Innovation in Health, and Information and Communication Technologies. The School of Nursing and Occupational Therapy Terrassa (EUIT Terrassa) offers the tracks of Community Action on Health and Nursing in Specific Contexts. Finally, the Sant Pau School of Nursing (EUI Sant Pau) offers specialisations in Specific Nursing Care in Cardiology and Specific Nursing Care in Oncology.

Evaluation

In line with the degree's focus on competences and the use of different teaching and learning strategies, the assessment procedures adopted vary accordingly. Traditional assessment procedures, such as objective tests, are accompanied by alternative procedures, which are used in group work, practical assignments and practicums, and which take into account students' implication in the learning and assessment process.
EUI Sant Pau: mainly continuous assessment (a combination of exams and assignments).
EUIT - Terrassa: the school encourages students' active involvement in their learning processes and monitors their progress throughout their time at the school.

Timetables

EUI Sant Pau : one shift (morning classes, from 8 to 13h., and clinical practice in the mornings, from 7/8 to 13h. or afternoons from 14/15 to 20/21h.).
EUI Gimbernat : two morning shifts (registration on a shift does not mean that all teaching will be included in that timetable, such as theory-practice units, seminars, clinical placements, etc.).
EUIT Terrassa: one morning shift and one afternoon shift, allowing more compact teaching blocks and a chance to combine study and work.
