The nursing curriculum presented by the ESCS provides general training, practice-oriented, for the development of critical thinking, in order to achieve autonomy and professional responsibility.  Research and scientific evidence are fundamental tools to deepen nursing knowledge and essential in the process of student learning.

The nurse is an irreplaceable professional in the care of the individual, the family and the community, both in health and in disease, and the focus of attention in modern society subjected to continuous changes.

The aim is to train proactive nurses with professional skills that will enable them to identify, assess and evaluate the health needs and care of healthy or sick people, with the ability to adapt and respond to the current health needs of the country.

As a centre affiliated to the Pompeu Fabra University, the School of Health Sciences offers a curriculum focused on students, in the teaching-learning process and with an extensive and differentiating practical programme (80 ECTS).

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Degree in Nursing has two specific areas where the internships take place. One of them has 5 simulation labs, facilities equipped with mannequins and last generation equipment that will enable students to acquire the necessary skills to practice in the real environment. In this second area, the student will make clinical rotation at the best healthcare institutions in Maresme.

From a total of 80 ECTS, 50 ECTS of the Nursing practicum will be performed during the 4th year of the Degree.  The design of the actual internships at this level represents an integrative view: process monitoring. This will be structured in pathways where students can collaborate with health professionals performing different and complicated processes at the levels of care and services where patient care is carried out.

The 160 theoretical ECTS will be made with a diversification of teaching methods and continuous assessment which will allow students to take an active role in their education.
