As a nurse, you look after people in all age groups, from newborns to the elderly. You work with patients and their relatives, as well as with the nursing team and staff from other departments. In complex cases and specialist areas, you perform advisory and management roles, and you are involved in developing care-related concepts and conducting practice-oriented research. On its Nursing degree programme, the FHS St. Gallen encourages its students to consider their future career path at an early stage. It is the only university in Switzerland to offer them a choice between three focus modules: ‘Clinical Nursing’, ‘Management’ and ‘Psychosocial Health’.

‘With the Bachelor’s Programme in Nursing, I am perfectly equipped to make the most of the fresh prospects in the field of nursing. The course teaches me how to think and act in an interdisciplinary, holistic and scientific way in demanding patient situations.’
