An essential Professional Master’s Degree for Nursing staff that will train them intensively to act in case of infectious diseases, and especially in intervention in case of COVID 19"

In recent years, new infectious diseases have emerged in addition to those already known to specialists. Their care in the hospital emergency setting requires a high level of training on the part of nurses, professionals who are increasingly required to specialize. For this reason, TECH has designed this training of the highest academic level, developed by a team of professionals with extensive experience in both the health and teaching fields.  

To this end, TECH has developed a program that includes the classic aspects in the management of infectious pathology by apparatus or organs, obviously taking into account any updates that may have occurred up to the time of the design of this program. In addition, it has incorporated new items, which are essential for the correct management of infectious diseases in the current scenario of health globalization. One of the main novelties of this Professional Master’s Degree is the specialization in COVID 19, totally new in this educational field and of great value for all professionals who are faced today with the care of patients in the Emergency Department.  

The academic program is divided into two main groups: on the one hand, the actions of the healthcare professional in the emergency department in relation to infectious diseases from the point of view of early diagnosis and treatment; and, on the other hand, the concept of risk prevention, derived from the care of infectious diseases, both for healthcare personnel and the population, delving into the measures that can be adopted in the emergency department to minimize them.  

In this way, this program is offered as a great value in the education of nurses who develop their work in the field of health emergencies, becoming a preparatory opportunity that should not be missed. In addition, being 100% online, the professional will have the ability to decide when and from where to study, without commitments or obligations, thus being able to combine their study time with the rest of their daily obligations.
