Nursing

"Do you like working with people? Do you often take care of others? Are you interested in the human body? Do you want to help people to become healthy and to stay healthy? Do you want to work with both your hands, your head and your heart? Then, nursing is the training for you."

Nursing is the only 4-year bachelor training in Flanders. The fast evolutions in the health care sector and the many different contexts to which nurses must be prepared (in theory and in practice) made this extension necessary. In addition to a strong dose of theory, which must allow a nurse to independently take responsibility of the patients, the training also frequently immerses you in the work field, by means of skills labs, clinical reasoning, simulation and work placement.

The 4-year (made compulsory by Europe and Flanders) broad, generalist training ensures that you can take a lot of directions as a graduated bachelor: you can work both inside and outside the hospital, and this with different target groups (children or youngsters and their parents, adults, elderly people, persons suffering from a psychiatric condition, persons with disabilities, patients in an acute phase, patients suffering from a chronical condition,…).
