Course description

The management of hospitals, nursing facilities, and outpatient care services is increasingly recognizing the urgent need for professionalization and further development in nursing. Patients, families, and healthcare experts are calling for higher quality and a stronger focus on person-centered care. Visionaries are essential to drive the necessary changes in the healthcare system. Academically trained nursing experts can significantly contribute to both research and practice. What is needed are nursing professionals with advanced academic training who are willing to take bold steps in research and practice. The master's program in nursing science was structurally revised and further developed in 2020 to meet current demands. The updated nursing science course (M. Sc.) has been available since the winter semester of 2021/22. This program equips students with the skills and knowledge to lead and innovate in the field of nursing. By focusing on both theoretical and practical aspects, it prepares graduates to make meaningful contributions to healthcare. The curriculum includes subjects that address the latest challenges and opportunities in nursing, ensuring that students are well-prepared to meet the evolving needs of the healthcare system. In summary, the revised master's program in nursing science is designed to cultivate the next generation of nursing leaders. These professionals will be at the forefront of improving care quality
