Nursing Management (B.A.)

General Information

General Information

The programme equips students with the competences needed to undertake scientifically based work in a practical nursing environment. The teaching therefore focuses on the nursing sciences.


The nursing management specialisation prepares you to take on tasks in leadership and management positions. You will learn to plan, produce and evaluate nursing care processes.

Nursing science competences are supplemented here by input on nursing care management and business administration.

In the Nursing Sciences in Practice specialisation you will analyse topics specific to nursing care and the health sciences in more depth. From a career point of view, you prepare yourself to take over complex nursing tasks in a practical nursing environment and become an expert on evidence-based nursing care and the coordination of complex nursing care situations.


The degree programme is fundamentally designed as a seven-semester, full-time programme (210 credits). At the same time, it is possible for 30 credits to be granted for nursing-related vocational training, thusshortening the course by one semester.

Furthermore, credit may be granted for officially approved nursing-related advanced training and further relevant professional work can be credited against parts of the semester of practical study.

At the beginning of the first semester of study you will be given detailed information about the options for the granting of credit and recognition of other training you have done. You may then make an application, if appropriate.
