Nursing, 23, full-time studies

Description

The Degree Programme in Nursing is a small, flexible and familiar programme with many international students. We educate culturally competent registered nurses in a multicultural environment. The focus lies on international cooperation and we encourage our students to do parts of their studies at our partner universities or as free mover students. Project work, teamwork, blended learning and online teaching are well established teaching methods within the programme.

The examination language is English and all literature used is in English. However, a prerequisite for participating in the clinical study module Clinical Nursing Practice iss a basic knowledge of Finnish or Swedish which are taught during the first year of study. Gradually, during the study time, the students need to use Swedish and/or Finnish during lectures and internships in order to be prepared for the working environment in Finland.

The studies consist of Core Studies, Professional Studies, Practice and a Bachelor’s Thesis.
The Core Studies are basic studies such as languages while the Professional Studies focus on Clinical Competence, Professional development and Nursing Research. Practice consist of internships in patient-centered care in clinical environment, in the hospitals or in community care. The Agenda for Sustainable Development 2030 has been implemented in the curriculum as competences.

The main focus is on nursing care in a global perspective and cultural competence. The students can, through their Thesis and last clinical study module, focus on their special field within nursing.
