Objectives

As a paramedic (Bachelor of Health Care), you have a strong competence in clinical nursing practice, and advanced skills to plan, implement, assess and develop the nursing of patients of varying ages. Paramedics are emergency care experts in acute care nursing and health care.

Emergency care nursing focuses on the care of patients with acute health problems or injuries. It includes assessment of the patient’s status, and starting and maintaining the vital body functions. The profession requires multidisciplinary knowledge in nursing and medical sciences, and its implementation in emergency care situations.

After assessing and interviewing the patient, you proceed to the symptom-related examination and interview to assess the patient’s state of health more thoroughly. As a paramedic you need to independently and immediately form a field diagnosis with treatment options, even though the information and operating environment is challenging. For that you need have strong stress tolerance. Based on the status assessment and urgency, the patient is transferred to the hospital or health care center by ambulance, for continuing of treatment and health care.

Paramedics work in collaboration with other professions in emergency care services as well as different authorities, such as the police, fire and rescue services and social services. Emergency care services are part of the national safety system.

How to speed up the studies?

You can speed up your studies within the limits of the prior study requirement of the courses. A careful planning is suggested when speeding up the studies, since learning and achieving competences requires time. You can choose independent forms of completing the courses, such as online implementations, and you can select courses from the schedules of other groups. Summer studies are also available. Speeding up your studies requires excellent time management skills and readiness for independent studying. If you have prior competence related to the course, such as studies or work experience on the subject, you can have the course accredited either partially or in full.

Your wellbeing is very important to all of us. During your studies, you have the support of the entire Xamk staff. All Xamk campuses have a student affairs office and student health care.

You will be licensed by the National Supervisory Authority for Welfare and Health (Valvira).

Your future workplaces are in emergency care services in ambulances, in specialized health care including emergency care and intensive units, in primary health care including reception and emergency units, and in the private sector, for example in ambulances. You can also be employed internationally.

RDI and cooperation with world of work

Almost half of the studies is conducted in cooperation with the world of work.

Learning environments

Learning environments in Kotka include an ambulance, an apartment, simulation classrooms and a diverse outdoor area for practicing emergency care, the assessment for the need of treatment, and patients’ transportation to the emergency department of the training hospital on our campus.

Simulations are used widely in Degree Programme in Emergency Care. The only ambulance simulator is situated on Kotka campus.
