The degree programme teaches the educational-didactic as well as the nursing and specialist competences which are needed 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 study material from the health sciences, and thus provides you not only with teaching expertise, but also the indispensable specialist and scientific foundations for teaching, communication and practical guidance at the same time.

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 institutions.
