They are an extension or deepening of the topics discussed by the teacher or experimented in an internship; they can have the form of monographic courses, participation to conventions and seminars, and training days.

More in detail, to students are proposed ADE in the following fields: General and Clinical Nursing, Community Nursing, Nursing Legislation and Freelance Work, Evidence-Based Practice, Bibliographical Research, BLSD for Adults and Children, Health Legislation, Human Science, and Healthcare Management.
