As a nurse you will have to focus on the entire person, with his physical, psychological and social needs. Besides devoting a great deal of attention to training technical and communication skills, we also want you to develop an informed opinion as well as a positively critical attitude.
In the study programme, attention is paid both to you as a person and to the emotional aspects which you are confronted with during the nursing training. You have to be a good judge of character, you have to be technically skilful and have sufficient knowledge and reasoning power to make the right decision at any time. Moreover, you will need some good social skills too.
Half of the study programme consists of theory, whereas the other half consists of work placements and clinical education. During your placements, you will be monitored personally by a placement supervisor who will come and work at your ward. The basic nursing skills will be taught during the first two years of your training. Work placements are organised at different wards of several hospitals.
In the third year you will get to choose one of the following five main subjects: Hospital Nursing, Psychiatric Nursing, Geriatric Nursing, Social Nursing or Paediatric Nursing.
