Study Objectives 

The first year of studies focuses on the basics of nursing, social and health care environments, customer relations, wellbeing, health promotion and functional ability.  

During the second and third year, the studies consist of different nursing areas based on theoretical and clinical nursing competences. This advances clinical decision-making, guidance and counselling skills, evidence-based practice, as well as quality assurance and patient safety issues.  

During the final years of the studies, students also strengthen their knowledge in leadership, management and entrepreneurship, and deepen their ethical and professional competences.  

Approximately one third of the studies is completed as practical training in various health care settings. Practical training can be implemented in the private and public sectors, in projects or in the institution’s own simulation environment. Practical training may also be carried out abroad as an exchange student. The student plans the exchange period with the teacher tutor.  

Finnish language skills are essential during practical training in Finland. Non-native speakers are therefore required to study Finnish during their studies.
