Bachelor’s Program in Nursing

Nursing staff are oriented toward the individual needs of patients. People are central to all they do. They aim to provide the best possible treatment and care, so that those affected can maintain their independence and autonomy for as long as possible.

The Bachelor's Program in Nursing at Eastern Switzerland University of Applied Sciences prepares you for the increasingly complex and demanding tasks in the field of healthcare. After completing the foundation and main studies, you can choose from three focus modules: «Clinical Nursing», «Management» and «Psychosocial Health» (in German). Depending on your interests and preferences, you will acquire additional knowledge in a specialist area and thereby further improve your future job and career prospects.
