  • Good predisposition to human contact
  • Good team working skills
  • Ability to analyze and resolve problems
  • Ability to autonomously acquire new knowledge and information by evaluating them critically.

Possession of a study title that meets one of the following criteria:

  • a secondary school diploma that gives access to the University, issued by a state or equivalent educational institution of the Italian education system in Italy or abroad;
  • final qualification of secondary education issued by an institution belonging to a foreign school system, located in Italy or abroad, obtained following a course of at least 12 years of schooling;
  • final qualification of secondary education obtained in a school system that includes 10 or 11 years of schooling, supplemented with one or two years of university, provided that all the exams scheduled for those academic years have been passed.

Candidates enrolled in the last year of secondary school can also participate in the selections at the state and private school institutions of the Italian education system or at a foreign secondary education institution that allows the achievement of a valid qualification for admission to courses of higher education of the Italian system with the condition, if the test results are positive, to present the diploma or qualification just obtained at the time of the subsequent enrolment to the courses, under penalty of exclusion from the list of admitted candidates.

Students already in possession of an academic degree (obtained in Italy or abroad) and those who come from another degree course or university degree are required to observe the same procedures indicated in this call for applications and take part in the admission test.

Additional time is granted to candidates with proven disabilities or particular medical conditions.

Formal didactics

This didactic form includes:

- lectures: dealing with one specific topic that is identified by a title and performed by a teacher with the help of computing and/or multimedia supports based on a predefined calendar and given to students enrolled to a specific course year and divided into small groups;

- seminars: didactic activities with the same characteristics as lectures but carried out contemporarily by many teachers with different competences and, as such, noted in the lesson registers in each one of them.

During the last period of the course, when non Italian students will have acquired sufficient command of the language, some courses may be taught in Italian.

Non formal didactics

It deals with interactive didactic activities aimed at small groups of students and coordinated by a tutor whose task is that of facilitating the students in the acquisition of knowledge, abilities and behavioral models. Learning mainly occurs through stimuli deriving from problem solving and the use of methodological skills needed to resolve them and taking decisions as well as through the direct and personal use of actions (gesture and relational) in practical exercises and/or attending clinical departments, surgeries, territorial facilities and research laboratories.

A) Teaching courses.

The integrated teaching courses are held by one or more teachers in function to the specific objectives assigned to the course.

The specific objectives of the individual courses that are contained in the exam programs and their programming are proposed annually by the course teachers within the start date of the enrolments for the new academic year.

B) Professional activities.

During the three year degree course, the student is required to acquire the professional specifications in the nursing field by carrying out internships in facilities identified by the degree course council (CCL) and in the defined periods. The internship can also be done in developing countries.

C) Elective activities.

The degree course council organizes the offer of elective didactic activities that are created with lectures, seminars, interactive courses with small groups among which the student is able to exercise their own personal option until achieving an overall number of 6 credits.

Each student autonomously chooses the elective activities among the didactics supplied.

The degree in Nursing lasts three years.

The educational objectives of the degree course are also aimed at giving the graduates the necessary preparation for precarious contexts such as those found in the vast areas of the Southern part of the world in order to:

  • identify the nursing assistance of the person, family and group by formulating the relative aims and managing them autonomously and responsibly;
  • planning, managing and evaluating the nursing assistance by respecting the cultural, ethnic, generational and gender differences;
  • guarantee the correct application of diagnostic and therapeutic prescriptions and verify the effectiveness;
  • participate in the identification of the person and group’s health needs and integrate the nursing assistance within the project of multidisciplinary cures;
  • know the general bioethical principles such as deontological, legal and medical laws of the profession and document the nursing assistance given;
  • know the norms of radioprotection foreseen by the European Union (according to the contents of the legislative decree no. 187 of 26th May 2000);
  • use English besides Italian in the specific skill area and for the exchange of general information.
