Pystyt kehittämään ja uudistamaan kliinistä hoitotyötä näyttöön perustuvaksi. Pystyt myös asiantuntijaviestintään omalla asiantuntijuusalueellasi.

Degree programme description

Koulutuksen (90 op) rakenne on jaettu kolmeen kokonaisuuteen, joita ovat tutkintokohtaiset ydinopinnot (40 op), täydentävät opinnot (20 op) ja opinnäytetyö (30 op).
Ydinosaamisen opinnot muodostuvat kahdesta (2) moduulista:
Kliinisen hoitotyön vaativa osaaminen (25 op)
- Asiantuntijana kehittyminen kliinisessä hoitotyössä (5 op)
- Minitieteinen toiminta kliinisessä hoitotyössä (10 op)
- Potilaan kliininen tutkiminen (5 op)
- Kansansairauksien ennaltaehkäisy kliinisessä hoitotyössä (5 op)
Kehittämisosaaminen (15 op)
- Näyttöön perustuva toiminta (5 op)
- Näyttöön perustuvan toiminnan kehittäminen kliinisessä hoitotyössä (5 op)
- Tutkimus- ja kehittämismenetelmät kliinisessä hoitotyössä (5 op)
Täydentävän osaamisen opinnot (20 op) voit koota ylempien tutkintojen yhteisestä Master Schoolin tarjonnasta henkilökohtaisen opiskelusuunnitelmasi (HOPS) mukaisesti. Voit rakentaa opintopolkusi esimerkiksi omaa ammatillista osaamistasi syventävästi, työelämän kehittämiseen painottuvasti tai vaikkapa ammatillista yleissivistystäsi laajentavasti. Myös opinnäytetyösi tutkimus- tai kehittämistarpeiden tukeminen täydentävän osaamisen opinnoilla on mahdollista. Tarjolla on opintoja ja opintokokonaisuuksia:
• tutkimus- ja kehittäminen
• johtaminen ja yrittäjyys
• kansainväliset työympäristöt
• digitaalisuus, tieto ja verkostot
Täydentäviä opintoja voit valita myös muissa korkeakouluissa tarjolla olevista, ylempien korkeakoulututkintojen tasoisista opinnoista. Opintoihin voidaan hyväksilukea myös aiemmin suoritettuja, ylempien korkeakoulututkintojen tasoisia opintoja, mikäli ne sopivat suoritettavan tutkinnon tavoitteisiin. Aikaisemmin suoritettujen opintojen hyväksilukemisesta voit kysyä lisää hopsin laadinnan yhteydessä.
Opinnot läpäisee 30 op:een laajuinen alan kehittämiseen tähtäävä opinnäytetyö. Opinnäytetyö toteutetaan työelämää tai ammattialaa koskevana tutkimus- tai kehittämishankkeena.

Implementation of studies and flexible learning tracks

Opinnot voit suorittaa joustavasti työn ohessa, jolloin opiskelu kestää keskimäärin kaksi vuotta.
Ydin- ja täydentävän osaamisen opinnot toteutetaan monimuotoisena, ja niiden kontaktiopetusta järjestetään keskimäärin 2 arkipäivänä (to-pe) kuukaudessa. Ydinosaamisen lähiopetuspäivät ovat peräkkäisiä. Lähiopetuksen lisäksi koulutukseen sisältyy verkko-opiskelua sekä eri tavoin suoritettavaa itsenäistä opiskelua. Lähiopetuksella on tärkeä rooli myös verkostoitumisessa, ryhmähengen syntymisessä sekä luovien ajatusten ja ideoiden vaihtamisessa.
Täydentäviä Master Schoolin opintoja toteutetaan kaikilla Xamkin kampuksilla, joita on Mikkelin lisäksi Savonlinnassa, Kouvolassa ja Kotkassa. Täydentäviä opintoja voi ottaa myös verkkototeutuksina.

Career opportunities

Kliininen asiantuntija YAMK -tutkinto antaa mahdollisuuden erilaisiin asiantuntija- ja kehittämistehtäviin.
Tutkinnon suorittaneet ovat sijoittuneet muun muassa esimiehiksi, asiantuntijasairaanhoitajiksi tai kehittämisprojektien vetäjiksi.

RDI and cooperation with world of work

Kaakkois-Suomen ammattikorkeakoulun tutkimus-, kehittämis- ja innovaatiotoiminnan (TKI) tarkoituksena on lisätä uudistumisen ja yrittäjyyden edellytyksiä. Koulutus ja TKI-toiminta yhdessä muodostavat jatkumon osaamisen kasvulle.
Tutkimus- ja kehittämistoiminta tähtää uuden tiedon tuottamiseen ja käytännön sovellutuksiin, kuten menetelmien ja järjestelmien aikaansaamiseen. Innovaatiotoiminnan tuloksena syntyy taloudellista hyötyä antavia, uusia tai olennaisesti parannettuja tuotteita, käytänteitä tai prosesseja.
