The Nursing Department organized a successful symposium on Nursing Specialties and Graduate Studies

The event was part of the Academic and Career Guidance Plan for 4th-year students in the Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing, in order to develop competencies connected to the world of work.

Students in the 4th year of the Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing attended the Academic and Career Guidance Plan on November 7, organized by the School of Biomedical and Health Sciences. Attendees got first-hand information on continuity in specialized nursing studies.

To this end, the lecturers were nursing graduates and resident interns (EIR) from different regulated specialties. The guest speakers shared their impressions of nursing specialties, how they are accessed, and the job opportunities they offer.
