Profession-recognized nursing degree (new degree title from winter semester 2022/2023)
As of January 1, 2020, the Nursing Professions Reform Act has come into full force and re-regulates the existing training programs in nursing. In order to adequately train nursing professionals, it is now possible to complete nursing training at a university as well. As of the winter semester 2020/2021, we are offering a profession-recognizing degree program in nursing (B.Sc.).
Note: Enrollment in the first semester of the program is possible - subject to ministerial approvals - for the winter semester 2022/2023.
Degree: Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.), 7 semesters (new standard period of study from winter semester 2022/2023).
Increasing the attractiveness of the nursing profession already begins with needs-based training of future nursing professionals. With the implementation of the Nursing Professions Reform Act on January 1, 2020, the nursing training programs still regulated separately in the Nursing Act and the Elderly Care Act were merged into a generalist training program leading to a degree in nursing. For the first time, reserved activities have been defined that may only be performed by nursing specialists: Assessment and determination of individual nursing needs; organization, design and control of the nursing process as well as analysis, evaluation, assurance and development of nursing quality.
.... and this training may now also be completed at a university: Our "Nursing" degree program with the academic degree "Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.)" trains you for inpatient and outpatient highly complex nursing care.
