Objectives and competences


What you will learn The EHEA bachelor's degree in Nursing provides students with a generalist qualification comprising scientific and personal training, and enables them to develop a critical, reflective and humanist approach to the nursing profession. Students will acquire the skills to identify and assess the health needs of individual patients, families and members of the local community, and the practical experience to attend to these. In the task of developing personal potential, promoting health, preventing illness and providing treatment, nursing professionals need to work side by side with other health care personnel in the planning, organization, management and assessment of a variety of professional areas. For this reason, the degree in Nursing aims to provide students with the following skills and competences: -knowledge of nursing science and of health, human and social sciences so as to effectively attend to patients' needs and to the needs of families, social groups and the community at large; -professional skills in the application of protocols and procedures for treatment; -interpersonal skills in the development of positive relationships with patients, patients' families and other health care personnel; -good practices and the ability to ground professional activity in ethical principles respecting individuals' values, rights and personal dignity; -analytical skills and the ability to reflect and extrapolate, applying scientific methodology and findings to decision-taking in treatment and care. Through the completion of placements in health care centres, the student will have the opportunity to put in practice the classroom learning and skills he or she has acquired and will also gain experience of different professional contexts. Finally, upon successful completion of the degree, students may either begin professional practice or go on to postgraduate studies.
