The nursing management specialisation prepares students for managerial tasks in nursing management and quality management. As a nursing manager, you will learn to plan, design and evaluate nursing care processes. The programme teaches students about nursing science, supplemented by input on nursing management, health care management and business administration.
In the Nursing Sciences in Practice specialisation, students will examine topics which are specific to nursing care and the health sciences in more detail.

Programme organisation and granting of Credits for one semester
The degree programme is designed to be flexible and students can also study at their own speed (e. g. as they start their family). At the same time, 30 Credits may be granted for nursing-related vocational training, thus shortening the programme by one semester.
Furthermore, Credits 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 Credits and recognition of other training you have done. You may then submit an application, if appropriate.
Guidelines for the recognition of and granting of Credits for vocational and advanced training
This degree programme awards 210 Credits (workload 750 hrs per semester).
