Mission: The Nursing School of Coimbra, heir to the most ancient nursing training in Portugal, is a nationally and internationally recognised public institution due to its quality and innovation, with a recognised intervention in the health system and in the society. Its educative community is committed with the humanist, scientific, technical and cultural training of socially recognised professionals, the promotion of accredited research, the dissemination of knowledge and the provision of services.

Vision: 1 - The ESEnfC is a national and international reference in the development and affirmation of the Nursing discipline. It provides training in partnership with national and international health and education institutions. Moreover, the School is oriented towards the new socio-demographic needs and the requirements of the global labour market and lifelong training. It is also students’ first choice for the three training cycles in Nursing. 2 - The ESEnfC is a reference in terms of quality of production, dissemination and transfer of knowledge, and in the training of researchers. It contributes for the development of innovative practices based on the knowledge produced. The School is recognised at the national and international levels because it systematically articulates research, training and practices in the nursing domain. 3 - The School develops consulting and innovation services in nursing in order to meet the needs resulting from social changes, implements scientific evidences and facilitates training, research and entrepreneurship processes in articulation and complementarity with other community institutions. 4 - The ESEnfC is recognised and sought at the international level due to the qualification of the teaching body, its undergraduate and postgraduate training and research in nursing. It promotes scientific, technical and cultural mobility of the teaching staff, the non-teaching staff and students, as well as the development of training and research in collaboration with similar institutions. 5 - The professionals trained by the School are socially recognised by the excellence of their overall training. For this training contributes a culture which is characterised by the focus on the person, the respect for his/her creativity, innovation and commitment with the project of the School, satisfaction with the work/study and by the systematic articulation of all the domains of training, innovation and research. 6 - The School is a reference in the higher education system at the level of the processes of management, development, consolidation and partnerships. It stands out due to its high level of participation in the decision-making process centred on self-responsibility, the sustained organisation of its processes and the visibility in the community.
