Erasmus Mundus Master Course in Emergency and Critical Care Nursing from 2017 to 2022 (EACEA).


"The value of things is not the time they last, but the intensity with which the occur. That is why there are unforget table moments and unique people. Fernando Pessoa I will never forget you EMECC family!"

Ana Fernandes Teixeira, Portugal

"EMMECC taught me how to enjoy life, be competitive in my field of specialty, and be culturally sensitive to people. It also made me develop new eyes that see beyond what is visible."

Lionel Pelete Pusing, Philippines

"EMMECC has changed my life! It has confirmed that the art of being amazed by blessings (big or small) should be kept as a habit. Small things in life teach us how to make great strides! It has shown me once again to enjoy the fresh air in the heat, a warm home in the cold, to pray in solitude and to be happy for what I have and what I am..... And then dream of what I want!"

Alejandra Guerrero, Colombia

Emergency and intensive care nurses must be prepared to deal with life-threatening problems and complex situations in extreme environments, reasons why they should be endowed with specific knowledge, skills and attributes to provide care to critically ill or unstable patients and their families. Emergency nurses must be able to prioritise patient care and to provide accurate assessment and effective ongoing management for a diversity of patient populations in situations ranging from life-saving interventions to managing critical situations.

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. EMMECC 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.

Semester 1 will equalize the level of students and offer a strong theoretical and methodological base to build candidate competence. Students will also be able to choose on a first, broad specialization on Adult & Geriatric or Paediatric & Neonatal Clinical Nursing. Semester 2 courses focus on core Clinical Practice and choice of elective study track. Core modules' target is to ensure a sound professional quality of the candidates, while the elective modules allow students to configure the Master towards one of four optional study tracks: Crisis Resource Management in Nursing, Adult, Geriatric or Paediatric & Neonatal Emergency and Critical Care Nursing. Semester 3 consists of a Master Thesis project that includes additional specialization through a tutored practicum. The guided research culminates in a report that will be presented and evaluated by the consortium before awarding the joint degree.
