Bachelor of Health Care | Nursing | full-time studies
Centria University of Applied Sciences educates qualified nurses who care for patients, support them and maintain rehabilitation for people of various ages. Our objective is to train nurses who can work both in Finland and in international positions around the world. During your nursing studies, you will learn interpersonal and interactional skills, guidance skills, decision-making skills, as well as diverse caretaking skills. Your main task as a registered nurse is to ensure clients' health and safety, which means you need to be responsible, cautious, and accurate. Nurse work is usually done in multi-professional teams. The ability and skills to work independently are required in nurse work as well.
The nursing studies at Centria are very practical, and from the first year onwards, you get to dive deep into the different fields of nursing. The studies are conducted in English on weekdays. Theory courses are carried out as contact teaching, online studies, and independent studies. Nurses must be familiar with different treatments, so part of the teaching happens in workshops and simulations. In simulations, you get to practice real-life care situations as part of a team or a group. We also have experts from the working life visiting our lectures. Nursing studies include several practical work placement periods in different environments, such as hospitals and health centres. During the work placement, you get to familiarize yourself with various work assignments with the support of the instructors from the workplace and your Centria teacher.
