Health sciences are undergoing constant evolution. This is made possible by technological advances, continuous training-updates for professionals and their research proclivities, all of which come together to produce the pillars on which on-going progress in health sciences is sustained.

The master's degree in Neonatal and Pediatric Intensive-Care Nursing aims at being a tool with which nursing professionals can continue to broaden the development of their professional skills so as to attain the level of specialisation that ensures the ability to provide a professional response in the ways that society trusts them to.

To help attain these objectives, this master's degree requires the commitment and involvement of nursing professionals from pediatric and neonatal intensive-healthcare units. These are the professionals that, through on-going training and the professional praxis that they develop daily have attained the level of necessary specialisation that allows them to respond to the academic needs of the profession.

Career opportunities

Nursing professionals who work or wish to work in:

- Pediatric intensive-care units.
- Neonatal intensive-care units.
- Medical emergency services.
- Pediatric emergencies.


Curricular placements.

A 150-hour period of clinical practice is distributed between the Intensive Care Units of Paediatrics and Neonatal Care at the Hospital Vall d'Hebron.

Each student carries out approximately 6 weeks of practice (3 weeks in paediatrics and 3 weeks in neonatal care).

Clinical practice is obligatory for all students, but they may be validated in part or in full when a minimum of 12 months professional development can be accredited in a paediatric or neonatal intensive care unit of a level three hospital.

Unjustified absence will result in negotiation of the hours to be recovered with the programme coordinator.
