Health care and nursing is in transition. As a result of the current legal expansion of job profiles, new job requirements are now being put into practice. Against this background, this academic upgrade for qualified health care and nursing personnel was started in March 2017 and complements the diploma program . This gives you the opportunity to deepen your knowledge in applied health care and nursing and to underpin it with knowledge from nursing science and research. University didactics and practical mentoring form further focal points in the academic education.

 What we offer you

FH Campus Wien is now the largest university of applied arts for nursing and health care sciences in Austria. Since being the first university of applied arts in Austria to establish a bachelor’s degree program in nursing already in 2008, we now possess extensive expertise and a large network of partners. This includes the University of Vienna, with whom we have a teaching network. The Vienna Healthcare Group, the Vinzenz Group and the Barmherzige Brüder are important educational partners. Together, we run the Bachelor's degree program for Health Care and Nursing. With the Master's courses in Advanced Nursing Practice, Advanced Nursing Education and Advanced Nursing Counseling, we cover a broad spectrum of qualifications for the higher health care and nursing services. In addition to teaching, we are also involved in research and development. R&D projects in the field of health care and nursing give you the opportunity to experience application-oriented research in practice.

What makes this degree program special?

  • Upgrade of the three-year diploma program
  • Fulfillment of increased practical requirements (legal expansion of job profiles)
  • Focus: University didactics and practical mentoring of trainees of all levels

The course helps to further improve the quality of health care and nursing.

You have the opportunity to deepen your clinical nursing competence and to link it with evidence-based findings from nursing science and research. Based on your professional experience, you will increase the effectiveness of your nursing decisions. You will be optimally prepared for the increased demands in practice and additionally qualify for the practical mentoring of trainees of all levels.
