Expected learning outcomes
The Bachelor of Nursing should produce independent, responsible, changing-oriented and patient-oriented nurses with the ability and will to provide well-founded nursing. The training provides competence in agreement with current regulations for fully qualified nurses.
The basic training qualifies for a profession which is subject to constant development and change. One important aspect of the basic training programme in nursing is to provide a training which will enable nurses to meet the challenges and opportunities in health and social services. The training is thus the beginning of a lifelong learning process. Nurses and employers have a joint responsibility for the continuation of this learning process.
Students are offered the possibility to take a part of the programme abroad. The university college has cooperation agreements with universities in Namibia, Australia, USA, Belgium, the Slovak Republic, as well as the Nordic countries.
