18.02.2014

The EMMECC community rejoices after the Master Thesis presentations. The graduates in the two front rows, the faculty members in the back.

The first 12 graduates of the Erasmus-Mundus Master’s Programme in Emergency and Critical Care Nursing (EMMECC) presented their Master Thesis at the University of Oviedo in Spain on 10-11 of February. The presentations were witnessed by an audience of other students, faculty members, family members and friends.

Five of the six theses completed in Helsinki Metropolia UAS received the highest possible grade. An additional honorable mention was given to Amil Kusain Tan for his thesis "A Qualitative Phenomenographical study of the experience of the parents with children under clown care services". The work can be read in the Theseus thesis database: http://www.theseus.fi/handle/10024/70484?show=full.

Principal lecturers Eija Metsälä and Marianne Pitkäjärvi from Helsinki Metropolia UAS were present as members of the Evaluation Board. The overall level of the academic papers was exceptionally high, and the praise received by the graduates was richly deserved.

"I learned acceptance and valued diversity of culture and religion"

The graduation ceremony took place in Oviedo on February 14. The graduates commonly felt that EMMECC has allowed them to promote intercultural dialogue and understanding in the field of Nursing which they can now implement in their future careers.

Here are some thoughts and feelings shared by the graduates:

"Today more than ever I feel that nurse’s voice is reaching World decision’s place. Being a graduate of the first EMMECC Nursing is the fact. My learning experience was far more than Nursing, I learned acceptance and valued diversity of culture, and religion…I hope to be an ambassador of the European value of tolerance after this Master. "

"Abundant learning experiences packed in one and a half year program. I can only take the richness of its values for my future career, my life and my nation."

"This program has allowed us to compare and contrast various nursing care system in emergency and critical care unit between developed and developing nation, which in returns promote intercultural dialogue and understanding. Thus, I strongly believed that EMMECC graduates can bring new knowledge and experiences in their home countries and abroad to improve nursing practice."
