Bachelor of Health Care | Nursing | full-time studies

Study objectives

The aim of the degree programme in nursing is to educate competent nurses with good knowledge of encountering, supervising and caring for patients with different levels of health issues. The education provides you with competence to act in different caring settings, from open counselling centres to intensive care units. You can choose to work with children, youth, grown-ups or elderly in Finland or abroad. When graduating from Arcada you qualify as a registered nurse with EU competence.
Working in health care means taking big personal responsibility and gives you plenty of opportunities for self-development. You work in multi-professional teams together with both the client and her/his close ones. The work also requires participation in planning, implementation and evaluation of changes within the health care system.

You will be working in a field where you constantly update and expand your knowledge and life-long learning is emphasized in your studies. You receive support in learning to work independently and taking personal responsibility. The curriculum follows both our national and the European Union’s directives for competences.

Study contents

Within the degree programme in Nursing you will study nursing (e.g. internal- and surgical nursing, pediatric nursing and mental health), medicine and natural sciences (e.g. anatomy and physiology). You will also learn basics in research and developmental work as well as leadership. The studies are carried out in close cooperation with working life, e.g. through projects carried out both individually and in groups.

The education contains both theoretical and practical studies. Scientific thinking is seen as important as a base for patient centered and evidence based practice in the context of nursing. Emphasis is placed on personal development, self-awareness, empathy and ethical conduct. The education is aimed at encouraging students to a critical, analytic thinking and a problem solving ability.
