Find out more information about Nursing

Nursing students gain knowledge in many disciplines closely related to medicine and discover a diverse approach towards the field. They specialise either in hospital or private practice and focus on families, individuals and communities. The academic schedule contains health and public health sciences, theory and techniques for treatments, as well as procedures and rules of best practices. However, theory and research have a high importance in the programme.

Students learn nursing in medical graduate schools, which usually collaborate with hospitals and other health institutions. Nursing degrees lead to a profession that involves the art and science of providing specific services to humankind and establishing long-lasting standards of practice.
