What you can offer

You want to make a change in health care and nursing and contribute to further developing your profession. 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 strengthen 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 play a leading role in designing innovative concepts for the organization and implementing evidence-based nursing into practice. You look forward to facing the challenge of combining your technical expertise with management responsibilities. You will benefit from your personal strength that enables you to recognize the interrelations between personnel, economic and systemic management.

What we offer you

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. Visiting professors support us in teaching topics of advanced nursing practice. Important partners from the industry include the Vienna Hospital Association, 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.

What makes this degree program special

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 nursing management. Quality and project management, change and knowledge management as well as personnel management and scheduling are key tools in optimally fulfilling the social mandate to provide professional and affordable care in the health care sector.


What you will learn in the degree program

The master's degree program in Advanced Nursing Practice 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.
  • Management: A third of your education is dedicated to management responsibilities in nursing. These include, for example, personnel management and resource planning as well as the fulfillment of the mandate to provide appropriate and affordable health care. You will be trained in quality and project management responsibilities as well as change and knowledge management in nursing.

Cooperations and Campusnetzwerk

We work closely with the Vienna Hospital Association (KAV), Vinzentinum Linz, Ried and Vienna, the University of Vienna, the professional association and other health care facilities. This guarantees you strong contacts for your professional career or participation in research and development activities. You can find information about our cooperation activities and much more at Campusnetzwerk. It's well worth visiting the site as it may direct you to a new job or interesting event held by our cooperation partners!
