Nursing Department Celebrates 25 Years
The UAC-CP’s Nursing Department celebrated its 25th anniversary last week with a variety of festivities, including the annual pinning ceremony following a mass.
The Nursing Department prepares graduates to work as health care professionals with specialized skills in public health. As part of the five-year program, students are required to participate in multiple week-long practical experiences in public hospitals in the capital city of La Paz, and at various hospitals, clinics and public health posts throughout the rural area in the Department of La Paz. In order to graduate, students must complete 48 obligatory courses, as well as complete either a final thesis project or a year-long residency program that includes three months at four different sites throughout the Department of La Paz.
