At present Nursing degree studies aim to enable trained general nursing professionals to have the ability to assess, identify, enact and evaluate the healthcare needs and treatment for individuals and families. In the different study plans care for the population deprived of freedom are not included, which requires specific nursing care conditioned by a closed centre context and by some socio demographic and specific healthcare features.
For this reason, the University Expert in Nursing in Prisons qualification of Blanquerna-URL, unique in Catalonia, includes a highly specialised programme, based on advanced practice, in the different areas of care (mental health, drug addiction, emergencies, infectious illnesses, chronic pathologies), and in the knowledge of prison regulations and rules.
