Abstract In Italy there is an ever-increasing presence of unlicensed assistive personnel in ever y healthcare institution. The aim of the present study was to evaluate nurse contribution about unlicensed assistive personnel education, on this content there is a lack of investigation in Italy. The last outcome was to know the student's satisfaction level at the end of their education program, regarding the organization of their academic curricula and nurses teaching skills. A descriptive study was carried out in two healthcare teaching centres of Ravenna county, Italy. The study evaluated the lesson teaching methods, laboratory experience and clinical training. The sample was 85 students at the end of their course and a questionnaire of two sections and 26 items was given them with a total adhesion to the study. The results demonstrate that many students (28%) did not know their future role and relationship with nurses so someone showed discomfort and disappointment (6%). Eleven students (13.1%) declared having difficult relationship with nurses, especially during their training in settings where chef nurse is highly criticised and a clinical tutor is nearly always absent. Nonetheless, students were globally satisfied with their program, results suggest improvements in teaching methods organization especially during clinical training to better understand role and support provided by nurses.
