Bachelor's degree programme, 3 years


The Bachelor in Nursing programme is a full-time course of study with a total of 180 ECTS credits over 3 years, equally divided between theoretical and clinical studies. The programme leads to a Bachelor in Nursing degree and qualifies for authorisation as a general nurse in Norway. The programme is regulated by National Curriculum Standards (2008). The faculty maintains a close relationship with the health- and care services in the Sunnmøre area.

A nurse works with people of all ages during all life stages, and has many employment opportunities in Norway and internationally. Nursing, care and treatment are the cornerstones of a nurse`s competence. The demand for qualified nurses is increasing, as the health- and care services are facing major challenges in the future. Through the Bachelor in Nursing programme the student will obtain theoretical knowledge and clinical skills that qualify for professional nursing.
