You want to make a change in health care and nursing and start where the profession begins, namely in education. You have a professional picture of health care and nursing that incorporates proven methods and is oriented towards further development. For this reason, you want to combine and round out your previous nursing experience with science and research. You see evidence-based care as an opportunity to improve care. With this approach, you want to accompany people on their way into the profession and share your knowledge with them. Your teaching focuses on the students and their different needs. You are open to the many didactic methods in order to best support your students.
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 and the Vinzenz Group. The focus is on innovative teaching methods and best practice examples in teaching. 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.
FH Campus Wien is the only university to cover a wide range of highly skilled health and nursing professions with a bachelor's degree program and master's degree programs in Advanced Nursing Counseling (health and nursing counseling), Advanced Nursing Practice (management) and Advanced Nursing Education (teaching). Students and teachers have the opportunity to exchange ideas and information and build a strong network across all the disciplines and locations in Vienna, Linz and Ried.
Your specialist discipline is university didactics together with the educational science. Your job as a teacher is to actively support the learning process and to support students in taking on personal responsibility. With your expertise, you have a strong influence on the next generation of professionals. You provide them with an innovative approach to health care and nursing that combines science and practical experience.
