Thanks in advance for your assistance. I'm reading an Italian study re needlestick injuries. It was conducted by questionnaires distributed to 2000+ university nursing students. The article refers to "practical nursing training." In the US, a Practical Nurse has 1 year of formal training, while a Registered Nurse at the university level has three years of training. I was thinking that "university program" in Italy was equivalent to "university program" in the US. Can someone clarify that for me?
