«Patients demand a more humane care»

«Every student needs human and intellectual training that enables us to develop fully as individuals to practice the profession in a responsible manner. So when choosing a place to study, not only it is important to consider the academic level of the institution but also the values it has. Nursing is a profession that seeks to integrate scientific knowledge with the development of the whole person, so it is essential that the professionals can prepare and train themselves permanently, in favor of their own development and in service to others; the Nursing School of the FCB promotes this and urges nurses to maintain a hunger for growth«.

«I believe that nursing is a profession clearly growing and possessing unlimited development capabilities. In my experience it has been essential the human focus that the University provides,as well as the interest in career advancement and training of competent professionals, has enabled me to provide the most professional and comprehensive care to the community. Currently I am working in the oncology area of the Children’s Hospital J. P. Garrahan and I can say that from the first day, being around and accompanying in the broadest sense the sick, has been one of the most rewarding, largest and richest tasks I’ve ever experienced».
