FALCO PEGUEROLES, Anna. New professional training: professional competence  and the nursing student competence. Educ. méd. [online]. 2004, vol.7, n.1, pp.42-45. ISSN 1575-1813.

The idea of professional competence has recently emerged in several fields, among them nursing and medicine. The publication of studies and articles on the subject in the scientific literature in Spanish shows the increasing involvement of professionals in the implementation of formulae in the areas of both care and education in order to train competent professionals. With the transformations in the university world, and the introduction of the higher education guidelines in Europe there has been a shift in emphasis in the organisation of teaching towards the learning process with the introduction of competence-based education. The definition of students’ competence is a fundamental task which allows specialists in nursing education to coordinate training and to determine the establishment of priorities for learning in both pre- and post-graduate studies. Several colleges have gone to great lengths to introduce changes in their curriculum and new methodological strategies promoting competence-based education. Examples are the new program designs and the introduction of strategies such as problem-based learning, and competence-based practicums and assessment systems.
