Competencies and objectives


Course context for academic year 2019-20

Like the rest of the PRACTICUM subjects of the Degree in Nursing, this subject is taken in public and private health centres, where the student will be able to acquire the specific skills that will accredit him/her as a professional nurse.

The main difference between this practicum and the rest carried out in previous courses lies in the degree of specialisation of the same, since it is a question of training the student in the application of care in specific situations and with a high degree of complexity that usually appears in patients admitted to so-called special units.

This subject is directly linked to the theoretical subject that receives the same name and that is necessary to know in order to apply in practice the theoretical knowledge learned in the classroom through seminars and theoretical classes.

This is a compulsory practical assignment which, due to its specificity and degree of complexity, requires prior theoretical and practical knowledge taught in previous courses.
