Bachelor of Health Care | Nursing | full-time studies
The aim of the degree programme is to educate students to become nurses (RN) for the field of health care. Nurses protect, promote, and enhance the health of individuals, families and communities, thus improving the quality of life. The prevention of illness and injury as well as the alleviation of suffering are core parts of nursing. Nurses are able to support people in health and wellbeing promotion, maintenance of health, and care for the ill in a holistic way throughout the life span.
The nurse is an expert who carries out and develops nursing independently and in multidisciplinary teams. The studies provide students with the skills needed in varied health care settings. During the programme, the latest research and evidence-based nursing practice will be integrated in to professional skills. The curriculum is based on EU directives so qualification fulfils the European standards.
Studies are divided into three stages: initial, middle, and advanced. Initial stage studies consist of modules Theoretical Basics of Nursing, The Basics of Competence in Professional Nursing, and Basics of Pharmacotherapy and Fluid Therapy.
Middle stage studies include modules Outpatient Health Care and Gerontological Nursing, Medical Nursing, Surgical and Perioperative Nursing, Women, Families and Children as Nursing Clients, and Mental Health and Substance Abuse Nursing.
Advanced professional studies consist of theory courses Nursing of Chronic Diseases and Acute Care Nursing, and clinical trainings.
More than one third of the studies are supervised clinical trainings in various simulated and authentic health care environments. Language studies consist of academic English, and occupational Finnish or Swedish depending on the student's educational background. Modules Development and Administration of Nursing, and Project Studies will stretch from initial stage studies to advanced professional studies.
The university collaboration enables TAMK students to choose five credits of elective studies from the courses provided by Tampere University besides courses available throughout the network of universities of applied sciences.
