All courses on clinical nursing include theory lessons, workshops and simulation exercises. Nursing skills (such as measuring blood pressure or administering injections) are initially practiced in simulation. After learning practical skills, you will advance to problem-solving situations. You will consider different scenarios and actions for different nursing situations, patients, and illnesses, after which, you will continue to deepen your knowledge and problem-solving skills in work placements in different nursing environments.
Close cooperation with companies, the public and third sector organizations is part of Laurea’s pedagogical model known as Learning by Developing (LbD). During the studies you will carry out projects in authentic environments. For instance, students have carried out projects that include visiting English-speaking schools to give health education for children and teenagers and have participated in different community outreach work on health promotion in collaboration with working life partners.
