Educational objectives
Hide
Graduates of the class will possess an adequate preparation in the basic disciplines, such as to allow them an optimal understanding of the phenomena underlying the physiological and pathological processes towards which their preventive and therapeutic intervention is directed, as well as the maximum integration with other professions in Italy and in European Union and non-European countries. They will also know how to adequately use the English language to interact within an international context (member countries of the European Union and non-European countries) with respect to specific acquired skills and through the exchange of general information. The achievement of professional skills will be obtained through a theoretical-practical training including also, and above all, the acquisition of behavioural and deontological skills in the working context, such as to guarantee, at the end of the course, a full command of all the necessary skills and the their immediate practical application in the Italian and foreign work environment. Particularly important, as an integral and qualifying part of professional training, is practical clinical training and internship, which will be carried out at the IRCCS-ISMETT under the supervision and the guidance of dedicated English-speaking tutors coordinated by the director of professionalizing activities, a teacher belonging to the highest level of training in the professional profile, corresponding to the European standards. Specifically, the Degree course has a duration of three years, divided into six semesters, for a total of 180 credits. It is organized in such a way as to provide adequate preparation in core and class-specific subjects. The first year aims at providing biomedical knowledge (anatomy, biology and genetics, physiology), as well as the fundamentals of professional discipline (general nursing, psychology and bioethics), necessary to face the first internship experience, aiming at guiding the student to the professional fields of reference and to the acquisition of basic assistance skills. The second year aims at deepening the physio-pathological, pharmacological and clinical-assistance knowledge to tackle the most common health problems of medicine (internal medicine, gastroenterology, infectious diseases, oncology) and surgery (general surgery, urology) with preventive interventions, aimed at the diagnosis (radiology) and the management of the acute and chronic phase of the disease. During the second year the student also acquires knowledge and skills related to nursing care in these areas, including rehabilitation. Specific educational activities are also planned to develop methodological skills to understand scientific and nursing research. The third year provides in-depth specialization and the acquisition of methodologies related to professional practice, as well as the ability to work in a team; knowledge and skills relating to maternal and child care and emergency-urgency are also provided. The interpersonal skills necessary to interact with patients, caregivers, and with the institutional and professional system are developed through the teachings of human sciences and educational psychology (forensics, clinical psychology). Alongside the frontal teaching activity in English, there is a parallel guided internship path, also divided into three years, in which the student, always supported by an English-speaking clinical tutor, learns and applies a series of interventions aimed at planning the nursing work; the internship, whose programs are commensurate to the degree of knowledge that the student possesses in a given year of course, involves increasing degrees of complexity of the interventions performed so that, at the end of the studies, a graduate in Nursing is able to perform the work of a nurse in complete autonomy.
