The School of Nursing organizes for the students who complete the second year of the International Nursing Program the possibility of getting to know other health systems through an academic or clinical experience at internship . Thanks to the agreements that School has with other institutions, students will be able to have a clinical or academic experience.
This is a short stay (which may be between 4 and 8 weeks), with mandatory character, in which the student will acquire a broaderknowledge on different aspects of nursing that will contribute to their learning as a future professional care.
The selection process will start with a single call for these students during the first quarter.
The ranking for the allocation of these places is made in order of transcript academic order according to the preferences of the students. Students must always comply with the requirements of language established by the destination centers.
The third year students of Degree in Nursing who, while taking the International Nursing Program, wish to have, on a voluntary basis, a second international experience, may opt for it once the process of assigning places for second year students has been completed.
For the International Experience, the student is responsible for the preparation of the documentation required by the host universities, being the School of Nursing the established channel for this communication.
As there is a direct agreement between the University of Navarra and each of the academic or health centers where the International Experience is carried out, the student should not contact, apart from the School, with the destination institutions to manage their own international experience.
