Bachelor of Health Care | Paramedic | full-time studies
The LAB University of Applied Sciences educates professional paramedics who are experts in emergency care with both paramedic and nursing skills. Paramedic studies are based on a personal study plan, which allows students to build their own career paths. Our modern health care labs and simulation environment enable developing skills, knowledge and decision-making abilities together with lecturers, experts and fellow multi-cultural students. Flexible e-learning possibilities are also employed.
Meanwhile studies include theoretical and practical training, the practical part of the education takes place in varying and multi-disciplinary areas of health care.
The aim of the degree programme is to educate students to become registered nurses (RN) and Paramedics. The graduates of the programme can help patients who are suddenly ill and need urgent care, both in and out of hospital. During studies, students learn how to recognize and anticipate situations that threaten a patient's life and know how to act as required by the situation. With non-urgent first aid tasks, paramedics are able to assess the patient's need for service and care, plan follow-up care and refer the patient to appropriate care.
A paramedic must be able to work both independently and as a part of the multi professional team. The tasks must be prepared to make independent decisions based on researched information and care guidelines. As a paramedic, you can also work as a team leader. The job requires pressure tolerance, as well as the readiness to act consistently even in difficult and unexpected situations. In addition, good physical and mental work ability is required at work.
Good contacts with different partners both within and beyond the university are integral to our programme. The paramedic programme offers the opportunity to meet people from around the world, learn about different cultures and study to become a competent nurse. All students are encouraged to take part in exchange programmes to deepen their intercultural competence.
