B.A. Nursing Science

Taking into account that we are currently living in an aging society with increased rates of morbidity and care needs this course enables interested students to study the design of new approaches to health care. The course aims to find ways to improve the current constitution of the health care system and to further interdisciplinary collaborations.

Theintegrated approach within the course is based on a completed vocational training as a professional nurse/carer or midwife. Besides from knowledge in nursing-related fields of science (health sciences, sociology, psychology, social law, social policies), the course covers the topics of basic and advanced nursing theory. The students will also obtain a thorough understanding of relevant fields in leadership management – such as social management, organisation and personnel (quality) development. Ultimately, the students will develop skills for consulting processes in all fields of nursing and care (patients, voluntary and professional carers, organisations).
