Since 2008, FH Campus Wien has offered the first Austrian bachelor's degree program in health care and nursing as a generalist degree program and combines nursing science with the professional qualification for upper grade health care and nursing. The degree program lays the foundation for evidence-based nursing: What you plan and decide in nursing is not based solely on proven tradition, but is scientifically proven. You will complete extensive internships in hospitals and nursing homes of the Vienna Hospital Association and the Vinzenz Group in Linz, Vienna and Ried.

You are interested in nursing science, applied nursing methods, medicine and health science. For you, health care and nursing mean taking on responsibility, acting according to basic humanistic ethics values and treating patients with empathy and respect. You seek practical training provided in a process-oriented manner that focuses on working with with nursing diagnoses, nursing objectives and health care methods. You want to be able to justify your decisions scientifically. You have a professional picture of health care and nursing that is not only rooted in tradition, but you are aware that the profession is evolving rapidly towards evidence-based care, and health promotion and prevention.
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. We developed the bachelor's degree program with them as part of a teaching cooperation. Important partners from the industry include the Vienna Hospital Association, with whom we work closely to organize our extensive internships, and the Vinzenz Group. The near future holds great potential for multi-site research projects. We also pay close consideration to science and research as we continually develop our the content of the degree program. Practical relevance is also guaranteed at our Campus Lecture evenings, which are open to all and feature contributions from prominent experts.
The degree program combines science with extensive practical experience, which makes it possible for you to earn the legally recognized professional qualification for upper grade services in health care and nursing by completing the program. Nursing based on scientific knowledge, that is the difference between the degree program and a certificate from a traditional vocational school system. Evidence-based care is the foundation that allows you to offer people the best care possible while at the same time conserving resources. Thus, as a graduate you will be able to follow scientific developments, critically question them and, in individual cases, implement them in your professional life. However, this alone is not enough to implement evidence-based measures in nursing. It is important to recognize what is feasible for the patients and their personal environment, and what the organization allows. You will be able to take all of this into consideration with your nursing experience in order to make the best decision for the patient in the end.
Your degree program is oriented towards international standards, is practically relevant and scientifically based. Besides technical-methodical scientific skills, you will also acquire social skills, communication skills and self-competence. In its methodical approach the degree program promotes project, problem and action-oriented learning.

The Campus Vinzentinum Linz, Ried and Vienna have been training students as part of the bachelor's degree program in Health Care and Nursing since fall 2014. In fall 2015, the Campus Social Medical Center South of Vienna (SZX) and the Campus Social Medical Center East of Vienna (SZO) of the Vienna Hospital Association (KAV) will convert their internship positions to study places for the bachelor's degree program in Health Care and Nursing. The Vinzentinum and KAV campuses will adopt the curriculum of FH Campus Wien. FH Campus Wien is responsible for the quality assurance and coordination of the training at the Vinzentinum and KAV campuses.
Each year a total of 86 study places are available at the three Vinzentinum campuses, and beginning with the academic year 2015/16, a total of 72 study places will be available at the two KAV campuses. Teachers from the Vinzentinum and KAV campuses, all of whom are qualified in accordance with the AQ Austria standard, will provide most of the on-site training.
Students will complete their internships at the hospitals and health care facilities of the Vinzentinum and Vienna Hospital Association. Approximately fifteen percent of the degree program courses will be held at the main campus of FH Campus Wien in order to promote the sharing and development of a professional community. Cross-site research projects are also planned.
