A job which directly influences other people's life and health. The job requires great responsibility but is also one of the most rewarding jobs one could have.
As a nurse you do not only need genuine vocational knowledge of professional care. You also need a solid emphatic ability and understanding of people's resources and needs.
On the Nursing programme you will be provided with a genuine education and training within both areas. The education will lead to a degree in nursing with the possibility of a Degree of Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
As a licensed nurse you will have general and broad skills for working in the health and medical care, either for the municipality or county council or for a private employer. The opportunities of finding work after graduation are very good — both in Sweden and abroad.
Many licensed nurses also choose to further the education with specialist competence within a specific operational area. You could, for example, work as a midwife, nurse anaesthetist or district nurse.
