The Nursing School of Coimbra (ESEnfC) has several modern laboratories in two campuses (Campus A and B) that are equipped with innovative learning technologies for students to develop technical and non-technical skills throughout their undergraduate and postgraduate degrees.
The Laboratories are practical rooms which allow students to simulate a wide variety of clinical scenarios and further develop their technical skills before the direct contact with the patients.
The Laboratories are also spaces for research and development of innovative methods of care delivery and teaching strategies
