The degree programme in nursing covers education in the care and treatment of patients with a view to enabling them to manage everyday life

We accept exchange students for clinical placements. The full-degree programme is taught in Danish.
The main subject in the programme is nursing where students learn to communicate with patients and relatives and how to handle emotions and situations of joy, hope, sorrow, anxiety and pain. Other subjects are physiology, biochemistry, psychology, research methodology, public health and management strategy as well as working across disciplines.

Throughout the programme the students will combine theory with practice and make observations, reflections and interventions.

We combine academic skills with practical experience and offer applied academic learning and a real life approach. The scientific basis for the programme is nursing, health, social and natural sciences as well as humanities. The learning and teaching strategies in our department include lectures, discussions, seminars, reflections, group work and project writing. Furthermore, we make extensive use of our fully equipped skills lab throughout the programme.
