This course helps students analyze communicative situations in the practice of Nursing and teaches them how to master the corresponding communicative skills. It also will teach students how to communicate effectively with the written documents that are handled in this specific professional profile. This course’s innovative element is that it includes language immersion via the nursing professional’s hands-on work in a healthcare centre.
CIESE-Comillas believes that mastering Spanish and the cultural aspects of Hispanic society are a growing value in the world of nursing and healthcare. We believe that by understanding Hispanic societies and going deeper into its specific communications, healthcare professionals will be better able to carry out their job with Spanish speaking patients.
The course is aimed at professionals in the healthcare field and graduate or post-graduate students in these or relevant fields. The biomedical cluster team will perform an exhaustive study of the student’s professional needs in order to design an itinerary for professional immersion that suits their profile.
The staff at CIESE-Comillas will also adapt the program’s content to the student’s needs according to their language level.
This program’s main aims are:
Healthcare in Spain and Latin America.
Nursing in Spain and Latin America.
Psychology, sociology and human relations in nursing.
Specialized nursing care (I).
Specialized nursing care (II).
The assessment will be for training purposes with the aim of controlling each student’s learning development and needs along the process. An initial diagnostic assessment will be taken to evaluate the student’s starting point and needs. Throughout the course the students will use a learning diary which will serve as an assessment and self-assessment tool. The students will perform a self-assessment and collaborative assessment of the oral and written activities.
