Nursing Teacher Education (B.A.)

General Information

Nursing Teacher Education

The degree programme trains students in didactics and also equips them with the nursing and specialist skills they need to work in Nursing Teacher Education. The teaching focuses on the curricula of Nursing Teacher Education, the nursing sciences, their current research findings, tools and methods in equal measure. It is supplemented by material from the health sciences, and thus provides you not only with teaching expertise, but also the indispensable specialist and scientific foundations for teaching, instruction and practical guidance at the same time.

Programme objectives

On graduation, you can plan, carry out and evaluate teaching and learning processes in vocational and advanced training and further education on the basis of sound scientific principles and so as to be target-group specific and context related. You advise and support trainees and apprentices, and nurses too, in their further education and advanced training, and are involved in advisory and quality development processes in educational and training institutions.
