The Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program offers courses grounded in the arts, sciences, and humanities, meeting professional standards for nursing education and practice. Nursing is a humanistic profession that enhances the quality of life by promoting health and preventing illness through the effective delivery of coordinated health care. Nursing knowledge is advanced through thinking critically, engaging in scholarship, and applying knowledge to the delivery of nursing care. The values of altruism, autonomy, human dignity, integrity, and social justice are the foundation for professional nursing practice. Through community collaboration graduates are prepared to assume multiple roles to impact the profession, health care systems, and communities.
We are proud to offer, in association with the University of Carabobo (Venezuela), FUNDAODONTOLOGIA, FUNDAUC, BOGIOL and LAM Oral Surgery, a series of Masters of Health Sciences in different areas of dentistry.
UNICAL has professionals who perform autonomous teaching duties, collaborators in the coordination of programs at the School of Medicine and Health Sciences.
