Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing

Practicum

The practicum in the Bachelor's Degree in Nursing at ESIMar is the backbone of the curriculum and the subject area that carries most academic value in the syllabus: 80 credits out of a total of 240. From a teaching perspective, clinical practice, study and critical reflection sessions and simulation workshops are combined seamlessly to facilitate student's learning.

The curricular clinical practice sessions are structured within 4 subject areas (11 individual subjects) and compulsory. The course plans emphasize the development of general, cross-disciplinary and specific skills, through reflexive professional action performed in different care settings and levels. This facilitates knowledge transfer and interpretation.

To this end the School has its own care resources - the centres belonging to Mar Health Park - and partnerships agreements with both public and private institutions.
