Registered nurse – an expert in health care
As a registered nurse (RN), your work in the growing health care sector will be challenging and independent. RNs are key actors delivering patient-centred, safe, effective and evidence-based health care services. You will promote and support the health and well-being of individuals, families, and communities. You will also make independent decisions in nursing, lead teams and perform supervisory duties. As an RN, you will work e.g. in hospitals, clinics and home care.
The studies emphasise competencies that will be needed in health care in the future. The focus is on evidence-based nursing.
The degree programme in nursing is carried out on the Lahti and Lappeenranta campuses. The Lappeenranta campus boasts strong knowledge of surgery care and emergency care and offers the perfect facilities for specialising in these areas.
The Lahti campus emphasises competencies in modern technological approaches in which smart self-care solutions promote the health and well-being of individuals and families. Smart self-care solutions include, for example, a variety of e-health services and robotic opportunities for patients and customers.
Language of instruction is English. Applicants to nursing studies in Lahti are required to have basic Finnish skills, and Finnish language studies are a part of both degree programmes.
Clinical training in authentic health care environments is an integral part of your studies on both campuses. You will study in an inspiring multicultural community and have a possibility to enhance your expertise abroad in student exchange. The education will open up a wide range of career opportunities in Finland and abroad, as you will possess a nurse's qualification in accordance with EU directives.
