Career opportunities

Almost 100% employment after graduation

Registered nurses are employed by social and health care organizations, associations or the private sector. Your workplace may be in maternity and child health care clinics, or in school nursing or occupational nursing. You may also be employed in home care, in a hospital inpatient ward, or in various rehabilitation and nursing homes. A public health nurse can also work in development tasks or as an entrepreneur. The employment rate of registered public health nurses is high and there are substantial employment opportunities both nationally and internationally.

Only a graduated, licencsd and registered professional can work as registered nurse

Public health nurses and registered nurses are licensed health care professionals. The education meets the criteria of nursing education given by the European Council, and contains the professional competence of a nurse responsible for general care.
Only a graduated, licensed professional can work as a registered nurse. After completing your studies, you will apply for the license for both professional registrations from the National Supervisory Authority for Welfare and Health.

RDI and cooperation with world of work

Clinical practice in different nursing environments strengthens your working skills and participation in multiprofessional networks. The Bachelor’s thesis is related to local development projects or other work-related development tasks.

Cooperation between teaching and RDI (research, development and innovation) provides you with experience in development projects connected to local, national or European networks. Cooperation between RDI and teaching gives you opportunities to participate in local, national and international development projects. The Degree Programme in Nursing is part of Xamk’s Sustainable Wellbeing focus area, which aims at promoting the wellbeing of individuals and communities, and developing new service models. In RDI projects you will participate in multidisciplinary teamwork with local service providers, and university staff and students. Xamk is cooperating with Aalto University, enabling new opportunities for RDI and teaching development projects.

Learning environments

In public health nursing education, a lot of learning is gained using simulations and online studies. There are modern simulation environments on all Xamk campuses.
