Degree Programme in Nursing (210 cr)

Basic and Professional Studies 113
The overall goal of the basic and professional studies in nursing is to:

• help nursing students equip with the primary nursing skills essential to patients' vital functions and activities of daily living needed by nurses in everyday work life;
• strengthen core learning outcomes for professional nursing by undergoing intensive theoretical and high-fidelity simulation training in various case scenarios;
• deepen students' skills, knowledge, and competencies in the chosen field of specialisation; and
• emphasise communication, leadership, and clinical judgment skills in nursing in preparing graduate nurses for professional work life.

Target Competencies: ethical activity, health promotion, decision-making in nursing, patient education, collaboration, research and development work and leadership, multicultural nursing, social activity, clinical nursing, and medical care

Basic and Professional Studies consist of the three interdependent levels. All levels are considered obligatory.

Level I: Foundations of Professional Nursing. Foundations of Professional Nursing (FPN) studies equip nursing students with the primary nursing skills essential to patients' vital functions and activities of daily living needed by nurses in everyday work life.

Level II: Preventive, Curative, and Rehabilitative Nursing. Preventing, Curative and Rehabilitative Nursing (PCRN) constitutes the core learning outcomes for professional nursing. Nursing students undergo intensive theoretical and high-fidelity simulation training in various case scenarios.

Level III: Advanced and Specialised Nursing Care. Nursing students deepen their skills, knowledge, and competencies in the chosen field of specialisation. Working in a multidisciplinary team to emphasize communication, leadership, and clinical judgment skills in nursing will be the emphasis on preparing nurses for the professional work life. Before graduation, nursing students will be required to produce a thesis meeting the European Qualification Framework (EQF) Level 6 equivalent to a Bachelor's level.
