    Before the studies

    You have a professional picture of health care and nursing that incorporates proven methods as well as the development towards health promotion and counseling. For this reason, you want to combine and round out your previous nursing experience with science and research. You see evidence-based care as the impetus to improve nursing. Your personal strength lies in communication and negotiation skills. However, you are aware that this alone is not enough. You need special techniques and concepts for professional counseling. Overall, you show strong initiative and have the ambition to help establish an emerging professional field and to further develop structures in health care facilities that both make possible and promote counseling.

    During the studies

    FH Campus Wien is now the largest university of applied sciences for health 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. Important partners from the industry include the Vienna Healthcare Group, with whom we work closely to organize our extensive internships for the bachelor's degree program, and the Vinzenz Group. In addition to teaching, we are also involved in research and development. R&D projects in the field of health care and nursing offer you the opportunity to participate in application-oriented practical research and to make valuable contacts for your future career. Based on evaluation studies, we further develop the contents of the program or examine issues such as what do "simulation patients" offer as a third place of learning. There is great potential in multi-site research projects. Practical relevance is also guaranteed at our Campus Lecture evenings, which are open to all and feature contributions from prominent experts.

    The certificate Master program in Advanced Nursing Counseling combines the following three core areas:

    • Science and research: based on research questions from daily life, you analyze, examine and explain research findings. You learn to implement evidence-based research findings in nursing practice and to incorporate research sustainably into practice.
    • Advanced Nursing Practice: you acquire advanced nursing science skills along with deepening your basic training and expertise acquired from practical experience. In addition, you learn to integrate advanced assessment-based plans of action into nursing practice. The focus of Advanced Nursing Practice comprises selected clinical conditions, such as chronic diseases, including dementia disorders, oncological diseases as well as preventive and health promotion topics.
    • Care and Health Counseling: one third of your training is dedicated to advisory responsibilities in nursing. You learn to implement counseling concepts that are resource-oriented, solution-oriented and prevention-oriented. As part of the Certificate Master program for further education, you will become skilled at counseling individuals and groups of patients, clients, family members and residents as well as applying relevant counseling techniques.
