How it works

Contact with patients will allow you to combine and compare your education with the reality and your future career. You are required to complete ongoing and structured practicums. 

Start practising right from year one. You will gain first-hand knowledge of the values that you will ap-ply during your professional career: respect for autonomy and protection of human dignity.

We will provide guidance throughout your time at the university through a system of individual and group tutoring sessions in which you will reflect on your experience.

Over the course of the programme, the clinical practicums will be organised as follows:

  1. In year one, you will come into contact with the setting in which nursing care is provided.
  2. In year two, you will gain guided experience in adult care, in both primary-health centres and general hospitals.
  3. In year three, you will immerse yourself in adult and elderly care, in primary-health centres, health and social care facilities and specialised hospitals.
  4. In your final year, you will enhance your abilities and adopt new nursing roles in both specific situations (based on the specialisation you choose) and as a teacher in health education pro-grammes for specific groups of people.

Materials and equipment

Official uniforms are a distinctive feature of health professionals. For nursing practicums you will need two white coats with the UIC Barcelona logo.
