Historical-Cultural Center of Iberian-American Nursing (CHCEIA)
Created in 1992, the center is academically linked to the Department of Professional Orientation, School of Nursing, University of São Paulo, and its scope is to become a reference center for the development of historical research on Iberian-American Nursing.
With its two virtual training laboratories, CETENF allows the students to use videoconference to discuss clinic cases with professionals and professors who are physically away; whereas the Internet-based educational systems Cybertutor and Moodle Network Student/USP optimize apprenticeship and enhance the inter-activity with colleagues and professors. The laboratories also offer apprenticeship objects for the understanding of procedures and human body. Among them, the Virtual Man, a set of dynamic, 3D-computer-graphically created images for the Tele-Medicine Subject of the Faculty of Medical Sciences of USP (www.projetohomemvirtual.org.br).
Furthermore, CETENF has the third Classroom of the Future of Brazil: the first is located in the Faculty of Medical Sciences of USP; the second, in the Polo of Medicine of Amazon. The Classroom of the Future allows for students’ and professors’ mobility and educational material sharing in real-time during a certain lecturing activity, employing wireless technology, video-streaming, webconference, making use of softwares such as point-to-point or multipoint Adobe Connect or videoconferences. In another room there is a study and research station equipped for webconference and the Tele-Clinic, which integrates the National Program for Tele-healthcare applied to primary healthcare in Brazil by the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Sciences and Technology. Available, there are Master’s dissertations and Doctoral theses, apart from other on-going studies supported by FAPESP (Research Support Foundation of the State of São Paulo), CNPq (National Council for Scientific and Technological Development), and Pan-American Health Organization – OPAS. Furthermore, CETEnf-EEUSP has provided the use of information and communication technologies for graduate programs, widening the articulation possibilities within national and international network for both training and research.
Laboratory of Microbiological Trials (LEM)
Created in 2005, the Laboratory of Microbiological Trials is located in the annex building basement of EEUSP, and is academically connected to the Department of Medical-Surgical Nursing, EEUSP. Fully equipped to carry out basic laboratorial techniques in microbiology, the laboratory endeavors continuous enhancements within its structure by means of fomenting agencies, especially from FAPESP (Research Support Foundation of the State of São Paulo), so as to increasingly and thoroughly meet the new investigation method demands. Administratively speaking, it reports to the Nursing Laboratory Center for Training, Abilities, Simulation, and Research – CELAB/EEUSP.
Laboratory of Nursing Degree Training
Laboratory of Nursing Abilities (LabHabEnf)
Linked to the four departments of EEUSP, the objective of the Laboratory of Nursing Abilities (LabHabEnf) is to enable and enhance the teaching-learning of nursing healthcare upon developing abilities, serving as support to the subjects and modules for BS and Degree courses in Nursing, and incrementing healthcare-related researches in nursing.
Laboratory of Computation and Information Technology (LITE)
Academic and interdisciplinary in nature, LITE is committed to enhance and provide the application of telecommunications and computational technologies in researching, training, management, and assistance towards nursing-related activities.
LITE is composed of:
• Study Center on Telenursing, EEUSP – CETEnf/EEUSP;
• Center of Virtual Production, EEUSP;
• Center of Distance-Learning Studies and Researches, EEUSP:
Laboratory of Ludic Resources for Care and Apprenticeship (Toy-library)
The Laboratory of Ludic Resources for Care and Apprenticeship has the purpose of rendering services upon teaching, research, and extension spheres regarding ludic situations of human development.
Experimental Laboratory for Animal Models (LEMA)
LEMA develops studies derived from the analyses of biological variables in rats, the central motto of which is physiopathology of kidney syndromes. These descriptive investigations aim to elucidate the physiological mechanisms involved in the major kidney syndromes within controlled situations by resorting to accurate and specific instrumentals.
LEMA’s most used kidney evaluation techniques are clearance of creatinine and inulin, fractional sodium excretion, oxidative profile and histology of kidney tissue, apart from the usual biochemical tests such as blood glucose, sodium, and potassium level, and some.
The studies conducted aim at transposing the clinic scenarios onto the laboratory bench in an attempt to isolate non-modifiable factors in humans, but that in animals can be distinguished in physiopathology study particulars.
LEMA excels at developing studies in which all ethical precepts concerning lab-animal handling is respected and rigorously implemented in compliance with the terms set in Law #11 794, of October 8, 2008, which establishes procedures for animal scientific usage.
LEMA represents the nurse’s singular scenario insertion into animal-model investigations, subsidizing almost in an unprecedented way in the country this professional’s training in developing studies of this kind within a nursing school.
It is physically located in an area of 653.12 m2; attends the EEUSP community and the external public, and renders advisory services to the scientific nursing community both nationally and internationally. It is renowned as one of the most important libraries of nursing in Latin America.
The bibliographic patrimony consists of books, journals, thesis, leaflets, and special materials totaling over 74,077 volumes. This patrimony is up-to-date, the reference system is electronic and it is available for research in DEDALUS (USP Bibliographic Data Bank). It also enables an on-line access to electronic journal web sites and E-books.
