The Minister for Research and Universities, Gemma Geis, visited Sabadell today to officially announce that the Parc Taulí teaching unit will host 75 of the 150 new annual public places in the nursing degree that, from next year, will be offered by the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB).

In this sense, in today's event Mariona Creus recalled that Sabadell already enjoyed many years ago a very prestigious School of Nursing, the Epione School, which was active between 1966 and 1979 in the facilities of the old Children's Clinic of the Child Jesus, and in which 519 students graduated, most of whom later formed part of the staff of the Parc Taulí.
According to the forecasts of Sabadell City Council, the degree in nursing could be transferred to Artètil in the 2026/2027 academic year, after a first phase of rehabilitation of the building to house the Teaching Unit.
