Bachelor of Healthcare in Nursing
The goal of the degree program is to educate healthcare professionals with general and special knowledge in health care and nursing. The studies enable graduates to work in Finland and other international environments in hospitals and health centers as well as in the private sector. The aim of the program is to provide the students with a broad core knowledge base as well as the advanced knowledge necessary to fulfill current and future needs in health care.
The students receive good theoretical and practical skills in nursing, nursing science, and nursing research so as to be able to contribute to the development of nursing. In the learning process, the student formulates links between practical experience and theoretical concepts. These links require the integration of theory and practice and that is facilitated by reflection on practice. The clinical practice can be done in Finland or abroad.
