What you can offer

You would like to expand your expertise in health care and nursing with scientific competence. For this reason, you want to strengthen and reflect on your previous nursing experience with science and research. It is your desire to make a change in health care and nursing and to help further develop your profession. You would like to take responsibility for the individual and professional mentoring of trainees at all levels and are aware that practice-oriented learning requires university didactic expertise.

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 academic courses Health Care and Nursing, practice mentoring, Primary Health Care Nursing and Public Health as well with  Master's courses 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?

  • Fulfillment of increased practical requirements (legal expansion of job profiles)
  • Focus: University didactics and practical mentoring of trainees of all levels
  • Networked and self-directed knowledge acquisition that addresses any needs from traditional diploma education and empowers and empowers students with higher education for the challenge of practice.

    The course helps to further improve the quality of health care and nursing. As an academic advanced training course for qualified health care and nursing personnel, it closes a gap between the diploma program associated with the professional qualification and a university degree. 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. As a graduate, you are entitled to instruct trainees of all levels and to carry the additional title of practical instructor.

    What you will learn in the degree program

    In the academic course, you will acquire a systematic understanding of science and, on the basis of your newly acquired scientific and evidence-based expertise, increased professional competence.

    In addition to a university didactic focus, you will also be trained in practical mentoring, which can be compared to §64 GuKG.

    Increased practical requirements such as emergency management, personalized medicine, discharge management, the preparation of nursing reports as well as changes in the delegation and subdelegation are reflected in the content of the academic course.
