Localized Curricula

3 Localized FCN Curricula based on the ENhANCE FCN European Curriculum

A main project outcome result (see also Deliverable D3.3) has been the instantiation of the ENhANCE European FCN Curriculum into 3 Localized Curricula. These were launched and piloted in YR3 targeting graduate nurses at 3 different educational institutions: The University of Thessaly (UTH), the University of Genoa (UNIGE) and the University of Eastern Finland (UEF).

The FCN Curriculum localized and implemented at UTH is based on all 53 learning outcomes targeted by the ENhANCE European FCN Curriculum, and corresponds to 40 ECTS at EQF-6 level. It consists of a total 250-hour Lifelong Learning Programme and leads to a Certificate of Specialization in Family and Community Nursing.

The FCN Curriculum localized and implemented at UNIGE is also based on all 53 learning outcomes targeted by the ENhANCE European FCN Curriculum. This 12-month FCN Course at Master’s level corresponds to 60 ECTS at EQF level 7. Upon completion, the student will receive a Certificate in Family and Community Nursing officially recognized by UNIGE.

The FCN Curriculum localized and implemented at UEF equally targets all 53 learning outcomes of the ENhANCE European FCN Curriculum and provides 30 ECTS at EQF-level 7. The programme is a 12-month course 100% online lifelong learning programme. In future, it will be provided as an integrated study programme in future UEF Nursing programmes both at Masters’ and Bachelor-level. Upon completion, the student will receive a Certificate in Family and Community Nursing officially recognized by UEF.
