The levels of complexity and sophistication that characterise today’s healthcare profession make advanced and thorough training key for effective professional practice. The aging population and rapid technical-scientific developments are generating critical cases that demand high-quality nursing skills and efficiency.
The Master’s and Doctorate degrees in Nursing are both official interuniversity programmes offered by a network of eight Spanish universities and one Belgian university, and designed to train nursing researchers and specialists to carry out studies and apply social, cultural, political and psychological knowledge to healthcare for individuals, families and communities in function of the dynamics of various public health systems.
The main objective of the programme is to provide the training that will allow nursing professionals to effectively administer health services and improve the quality of life in the 21st century. In short, the curriculum imparts training in new theoretical and methodological tools for providing healthcare in a complex and ever-changing society, while simultaneously devoting time and energy to improving the lives and overall health of individuals in a holistic fashion (caring for their well-being on a biological, psychological and social level).
For greater compatibility with students’ professional practises, this programme is imparted via intensive classes held only two days a week.
