The Erasmus Mundus Master Course in Emergency and Critical Care Nursing (EMECC NURSING) is the first international joint degree in advanced nursing available in Europe.
It offers a highly specialized education in nursing, with an advanced perspective. The programme combines theoretical teaching, research methodology and activities, communication & management of critical scenarios and advanced evidence-based practice, using state of the art clinical technologies.
The Master's main objective is to provide a structured and methodologically sound training programme that will cover the shortage of specially trained staff that burdens our health systems' intensive and acute care services.
EMECC NURSING is promoted by a consortium coordinated by the University of Oviedo (Spain) and counting with the partnership of:
Metropolia University of Applied Sciences of Helsinki (Finland),
University of Algarve and
Polytechnic Institute of Santarém (Portugal).
All have a track record of nurse training in tight collaboration with local hospitals –some of them also collaborating as Associated Partners in the Consortium- and have, therefore, jointly developed a clear picture of the real-life situation of their acute care units.
EMECC NURSING course structure balances theoretical education on evidence based nursing, comprehensive clinical practice and a solid scientific instruction through a 90 ECTS (one and a half year) Postgraduate course leading to an international joint degree and diploma supplement recognized by all four institutions.
