* Agreement 12/2011 UPNA Governing Council

In accordance with the regulations of the Public University of Navarra and in particular in accordance with the provisions of the Regulations of the Public University of Navarra on final projects, approved by the Governing Council of May 27, 2014, and with the regulations of the Final Project of the Faculty of Health Sciences approved on April 28, 2021, this guide develops the procedure that regulates the Final Degree Project (FDP) in the Degree in Nursing of the Public University of Navarra.

The FDP will consist of a work carried out individually by the student under the guidance of a director, in which the formative contents, abilities, competencies and skills acquired in the degree are applied and developed.

The fundamental mission of the FDP director is to:

  • Set the specifications of the FDP
  • Guide the student during the completion of the dissertation on issues related to the structure of the topic, writing, philosophy or approach.
  • Ensure that the objectives initially set are achievable within the timeframe foreseen.
  • Authorize its presentation and defense

The work of the director begins the moment the student has been assigned a FDP director. 

The FDP must demonstrate that the student has integrated the competences and knowledge acquired in the Degree, through the realization of work from which applied implications for Nursing are derived. The FDP may be:

  • A literature review
  • A literature review with Proposal of Intervention/Improvement/ Elaboration of a Care Plan/Business Plan/Entrepreneurship Project/Analysis of public data/Others.

Activities for the completion of the FDP

  1. Start: once the FDP assignment process has been completed, it is the student's responsibility to contact his/her director within a maximum period of one month to arrange a working meeting. At this meeting, or within the agreed period, students will present the director with a proposal or preliminary draft of the FDP, including: title, objectives, methodology, work schedule. In case of having a co-director or an external advisor, it must be defined.
  2. During semester 7, the student must take the on-line course on Information Competencies ("CI for SAN"), available in MiAulario.
  3. Development of the FDP: during this period, the student will carry out his/her work with the advice of the FDP director, who must establish at least two working meetings with the student. The basic sections that the FDP will contain, as well as the format to be followed in the presentation, will be made known in the platform of Mi Aulario.
  4. Authorization for the defense: in the last meeting the director will have the written work and the student will make an oral defense. The director will decide if the work is suitable for defense. 
  5. Submission of the FDP: The FDP must be attached in electronic support (PDF) in the "shared space" enabled for this purpose in MiAulario. Any other technical resource in computer support not convertible to PDF must also be included in a single file in compressed format. The FDP defense registration and the Authorization of open or restricted access of the general regulations of FDP of the UPNA must also be submitted.
  6. Defense: the public presentation of the FDP will be carried out, before the evaluation committee that have been appointed for this purpose, on the dates that the Faculty will indicate sufficiently in advance, and the student can carry out the defense in three different periods: February, May or September.

The evaluation of the FDP will be carried out by the corresponding examining board using the rubric attached in MiAulario. The grade required to pass the FDP will be 5 out of 10.

The evaluation committee, if applicable, will deliberate on the grade in closed session, giving a hearing, if it deems it appropriate, to the director of the FDP.
