Bachelor’s Degree programme in Nursing

As a path student, you will begin your studies in August and study together with our degree students in the Nursing degree programme. You will study together with a multicultural group of first year nursing students and your studies will mostly consist of first year studies.

The nursing programme taught in English includes a lot of contact teaching and face-to-face instruction. The student groups are multicultural and international, and the ideas of good health vary greatly between cultures.  One of the benefits of contact teaching is the opportunity to discuss the definitions of health, illness and family with others and reach a common understanding.

Nurses graduating from Laurea have excellent employment opportunities in a wide range of jobs. According to your personal interest, you may be employed in an inpatient ward, an operating theatre, home care services, a paediatric ward, a psychiatric hospital or substance abuse care.

All applicants for the degree programme in Nursing are required to have basic Finnish skills (level B1) and basic English skills (level B2). Link to the Common European Framework of reference for languages.
