(English-taught semester) International Nursing Programme
The international Nursing program is meant for Bachelor students in Nursing who want to go on an internship in Belgium. Students should be fully enrolled in the third (or fourth) year.
We can offer a maximum of 12 weeks of internship with a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 3 periods of 4 weeks internship. Each period of 4 weeks equals 9 ECTS. We usually can offfer clinical placement in several wards in our partner hospitals, mainly internal and surgical wards. We can also offer placements in a nursing home or home care. We usually don’t offer internships in a psychiatric ward, because of ethical considerations. So, internship can result in 18 ECTS (8 weeks) or 27 ECTS (12 weeks).
An internship period has to be completed in combination with a Personal Development Plan (PDP), an assignment which enables you to reflect on your learning process during the internship.
In case you want to obtain more than 18 (or 27 ECTS), we can offer additional courses in English, varying from 2 to 3 ECTS. Most of the courses are guided assignments with a clear tutorial in English. Most of the courses can be done in Autumn and Spring.
