Assessment methods

Access to the internship examination is described in the Internship Regulations.
The overall learning test is carried out as part of the practical traineeship examination, where the in itinere and final assessments expressed by the practical traineeship tutors of the locations involved are also taken into account with regard to the achievement of the objectives set out in the assessment form.
The practical traineeship exam is usually held in attendance and is divided into a written test, which is necessary to pass the oral test, as described below:

- a nursing care planning in written form starting from a prepared clinical case relating to the person with low care complexity;
- a question on ethical - deontological or work-related issues related to the clinical case provided.
The student must use legible and comprehensible handwriting, frequently used acronyms or abbreviations are allowed.
- oral presentation of nursing care techniques in relation to the programme carried out with explanation of the scientific rationale.
If it is necessary to carry out the oral examination, the structure of the test may change; the evaluation criteria and he elements to be evaluated will be maintained.
