BELLO FERNANDEZ, Nilda  y  FENTON TAIT, María C. New Nursing teaching model: A big challenge. Rev Cubana Enfermer [online]. 2006, vol.22, n.4, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1561-2961.

Cuban nursing can't be expressed outside of the political, economic, and social context of our country in the last decades. Technical and professional training has been developed in different teaching levels: at secondary and tertiary or university, with a sustained historical route. In response to the marked deficit of nursing staff in the capital of the country in 2001, in Havana Province , emergence plans were introduced. The New Teaching Model appeared to give an answer to the training of emergent nurses, as well as to develop a teaching model allowing the recruitment, training, retention, and development of students in a progressive way to achieve a graduate with three cycles of basic, technical and professional training aimed at obtaining a higher degree of integration of both types of teaching, and to assure a progressive training of the human resources needed for the health system. This paper shows how the student is able to obtain his training level in a flexible, pertinent, and accessible way, according to the ”Battle of Ideas” waged by our Revolution. It should be stressed that nowadays there are 128 university headquarters in the 169 municipalities existing in the whole country, with 20214 s tudents enrolled: two unprecedented facts in the training of graduate nurses.

Palabras clave : New Teaching Model; integration; technical and professional training.
