Studying Healthcare and Nursing


Healthcare undergoes fundamental changes resulting from increasing cost pressure, a lack of physicians particularly in rural areas and an aging society. Therefore, the focus moves to health services like disease prevention and maintenance of health. These developments lead to a new role allocation and to more multifaceted scope of duties than in the past.

Graduates are employed in all areas of healthcare and nursing. Occupational fields range from healthcare and nursing in clinics, domestic care, nursing at long-term care institutions to health promotion, prevention and rescue service.
