Become a healthcare professional and help people at all stages of life to stay fit and healthy, and overcome illness. Our German-language General Nursing bachelor degree will equip you with the knowledge and skills you need. Take advantage of an opportunity to build a rewarding career: as a graduate of this 3-year full-time programme, you will have everything it takes to play a part in redefining nursing and healthcare.

What to expect from the degree programme

At the beginning of the programme (semesters 1–4), there is a clear focus on the fundamentals of nursing and learning about nursing’s various fields of practice. Each semester, you will complete a practice placement lasting several weeks. This gives you the opportunity to immediately apply the skills and expertise you have developed in your lectures. Your professional training will give you experience in a variety of areas such as acute, long-term and mobile care, and you will become familiar with the public healthcare system. Practical training accounts for 50% of the degree programme. 

In semesters 5–6 you will study familiar topics in more depth, as well as take a detailed look at efficient work processes. A particular highlight here in Krems: In the 5th and 6th semester you decide on an elective module and thus have the opportunity to specialise further in your desired discipline. You can choose from Pflege für Kinder und Jugendliche (paediatric nursing care), Onkologische Pflege (oncological care), Pflege im Unfall- und Neuro-Rehabilitationsbereich (trauma and neuro-rehabilitation care) and Pflege in Krisenzeiten/Krisengebieten (nursing in times of crisis/crisis areas).
