Integrated Nursing II is a complex compulsory subject, but an ideal space for the student in small groups to integrate horizontally and vertically the specific nursing skills and the generic skills of the first year subjects.

For the simulation of the knowledge of the different curricular areas of the first course of the degree, are used mainly the combination of two techniques of cooperative of learning so much to Integrated I as to Integrated II: The learning based in problems (ABP) in which the teacher acts as a facilitating element of this learning; the “buzz group” technique where by discussing small groups of students in the different functions proposed, they agree on their ideas on a topic. These learning methodologies allow the development of all the competencies that will be complex to manage and evaluate from a teaching methodology. 

Due to the nature of the subject itself and the methodology used, teaching is carried out in small groups of no more than 25 students in the seminars and no more than 10 in the simulation sessions. 

The structure of the subject is:

  1. Seminar: group work of cases by means of ABP, with follow-up so much of the content of the work as of the participation of the student. 

  2. Reflective Diary: Individual observation work carried out by the student with group tutoring with advice on its development. 

  3. Simulation: Classes at the Center for Simulation and Innovation in Health (CSIS) are held in small groups where they work on technical skills or procedures, discussion, case analysis, theoretical knowledge, problem solving, taking of decisions, teamwork and all the basic activities performed by the care nurse. It consists of 9 sessions of 2 hours each. 


The subject is structured in seminars that are worked in the classroom and simulated clinical practices in the installations of the CSIS of the ESCST, in which simulation sessions are given.

The seminars work on cases in small groups.

The following contents are worked on in the simulation sessions:
