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 and blended learning 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 modules (Clinical Training, Specialized Nursing Skills and Extended Nursing Skills) is a basic knowledge of Finnish or Swedish which are taught during the first year of study. Gradually, during the study time, we encourage the students to use Swedish and Finnish during lectures and at clinical study modules in order to be prepared for the working environment in Finland.

The studies consist of Core Studies, Professional Studies, Clinical Studies and a Bachelor’s Thesis.
The Core Studies are basic studies such as languages while the Professional Studies focus on Nursing Care in a global perspective, Clinical Nursing Care and Biomedical Science.
The Clinical Studies are conducted within Clinical Training, Specialized Nursing Skills and Extended Nursing Skills.

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.
