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 expert programs 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.
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.
In the academic expert program, 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 expert program.
