Juve is to offer a nursing master’s degree for nursing and midwifery students.
The school, which is based in Rome, will offer a Bachelor of Nursing and Midwiferies degree for the next academic year, with the first batch of students due to begin their courses in May.
It has been the target of an Italian government programme to increase the number of nursing graduates in the country.
The university will provide a full-time position for the graduates to help in the rehabilitation of nursing and the nursing sector in the state.
In the next year, around 250 graduates of the first programme will have the opportunity to work in a nursing or midwifi facility, which will be part of the state’s National Center for Nursing and the Midwifi Industry.
Juve has an annual turnover of €1.3bn and has made strides in increasing the number and quality of its nursing graduates, with around 150 graduates completing their nursing training.
However, the Italian health ministry has recently announced plans to increase nursing enrolment from 20,000 to 25,000 in the next two years.
