The Bachelor's Degree in Nursing seeks to provide future general nurses with the skills necessary to respond to our society's needs as concerns the promotion, improvement, and recovery of good health among the population. Students enrolled in the program learn how to properly use the technological, scientific, and human resources available and to guide, prescribe, and administer quality care for patients, their families, and the community as a whole. Additionally, the Bachelor's Degree in Nursing provides the training necessary so that graduates may work in the many social and institutional health-care settings found in local, national, and international contexts, fulfilling the many responsibilities inherent in their role. The curriculum of the Bachelor's Degree in Nursing (Ministerial Order CIN2134/ 2008) calls for the Degree's teaching to consist of 240 ECTS credits (four academic years). Student learning is facilitated by a curriculum which blends theory and hands-on learning alongside research activities, with 81 credits devoted to practicum-based training and 9 devoted to the undergraduate thesis, where the theory and practical components of the degree come together in the form of a research project. The Fundación Jiménez Díaz-UAM has extensive experience in training within the nursing profession. Founded in 1962 by Dr. Carlos Jiménez Díaz, the institution has remained true to its three basic values--care, teaching, and research. Of these, the most widely recognized facets of the work done in the FJD are quality teaching and hands-on training. The proximity between the FJD School of Nursing and the hospital's care facilities and also the expertise of the School's faculty are two of the School's primary strengths. However, the learning process is also influenced by the health-care system, the culture, and the standards of conduct of each institution. Throughout the learning process, we must not lose sight of the School's philosophy on "humanizing science," as we are convinced that this educational model aids in providing future nurses with holistic, professional training so that they will be able to provide for the needs of people, families, and their community.
