The Degree Programme in Nursing, a diverse community that welcomes students from around the globe. Our mission is to cultivate clinically proficient registered nurses within a multicultural setting. Rooted in evidence-based practices, nursing is a people-centered profession spanning various social and healthcare landscapes.

Our curriculum encompasses a wide array of subjects, including nursing science, public health, behavioral and natural sciences such as anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and drug administration.

Our program comprises Core Studies, Professional Studies, Student Internship, and a Bachelor’s Thesis. Core Studies encompass foundational subjects, while Professional Studies focus on Clinical Competence, Professional Development, and Nursing Research.

These internships, spanning 3–6 week periods, commence from the second semester and may be located outside the student's hometown. The emphasis is on providing a global perspective on nursing care and fostering cultural competence. Through their Thesis and final Student Internships, students can delve into their chosen specialization within nursing.
