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 Healthcare Group, Vinzentinum Wien and Barmherzige Brüder Wien.
If it is not possible to hold the EDV-based entrance test (Part 1) on 14 and 19 October 2021 due to Covid 19 measures, we will inform you in good time. The oral interviews (part 2) will be held from mid-October 2021 and will take place via online video conference if necessary. Applicants will be informed of the individual date for the interview by e-mail. This does not affect the online application, including submission of all documents, which serves as the basis for the subsequent interview.

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 Healthcare Group, with whom we work closely to organize our extensive internships, and the Vinzentinum. 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.
