The Post-Graduation in Nursing at Work aims to provide nurses with their own skills that allow them to establish partnerships with workers/employers, with the aim of improving the health and safety of individuals in the workplace.
It is thus committed to professional differentiation, based on nursing knowledge, to develop healthier and more productive working environments, taking into account the quality standards of nursing care, without neglecting the multidisciplinary knowledge needed to interact within an occupational health team. In this sense, the training is goal-oriented, based on the worker's needs, with a focus on work and work environment (FOHNEU, 1995).
This course, being since the beginning accredited by the Directorate General of Health (2015), in order to give answers to the orientation no. 9/2014, which foresaw the need for recognition of specific skills in this area, has now been restructured, according to the Regulation no. 9/2014. No. 372/2018 - Differentiated Added Competence in Nursing at Work, being accredited by the Order of Nurses, for Professional Qualification purposes, with the attribution of 3.5 Professional Development Credits (CDP) and for access to the attribution of Differentiated Added Competence in Nursing at Work.
The course aims to train Nurses at Work for:
In the practical and theoretical-practical classes the active, interactive and collaborative methods will be privileged. In the internship component the focus will be on reflection about the skills developed.
The course works in person with the possibility that, in some classes, students can attend at a distance through the Collaborate Ultra platform.
The various course units will have an individualized evaluation.
The evaluation is diversified (exam, work, project, seminar, portfolio) but focused on the development of students' skills.
The course will also have an integral evaluation, where the students will be able to express the acquired knowledge and/or the developed competences, through the accomplishment of a scientific article and a communication or poster to be presented in the final seminar of the course.
