Studying Healthcare and Nursing
Healthcare is undergoing fundamental changes due to increased cost pressures, a lack of physicians, especially in rural areas, and an ageing population. Consequently, the focus of health services is shifting towards disease prevention and health maintenance. These developments will lead to a new allocation of roles and a more diverse range of duties than in the past.
Graduates are in a position to work in all areas of healthcare and nursing. Prospective career options include healthcare and nursing positions in clinics, home care and nursing at long-term care facilities, as well as health promotion, preventive care and the emergency services.
