Programme profile

The goal of the degree programme is to educate healthcare professionals, who have both a general and a specific knowledge of health care and nursing. The programme enables graduates to work in Finland and abroad in hospitals and health centres as well as in the private sector.

The aim of the programme is to provide 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 an in-depth introduction to 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, for example, reflection on practice. Students are offered ample opportunity to promote their own personal growth and development.
