Bachelor of Nursing

About the programme

In Denmark, students of nursing learn through a mixture of theoretical teaching, simulation-based training and clinical internships at hospitals and municipal healthcare institutions. The bachelor degree programme has a strong focus on professional practice, though the theoretical teaching is always based on the latest national and international research. 

Subjects include professional nursing skills, both working with somatic and mental illness as well as acute and chronic diseases. There is a strong focus on cross-disciplinary work in combination with professional self-dependence. 

The bachelor degree programme offers students a lot of international possibilities, both in terms of clinical internships abroad, exchange and international project work. 

Professional profile

Nurses typically work in hospitals or in municipal healthcare institutions, such as homes and elderly care centres, health centres, physicians’ offices or private clinics. They also work internationally in NGOs and relief organisations. 

Graduates can continue their studies with a master degree at a university.
