Advanced Nursing Practice

Short description

In the module “Advanced Nursing Practice”, health care students receive and discuss the current state of research in health care which is fed back at a later stage to hospitals and doctors. The internship in nursing practices encompasses 120 hours. 100 hours are completed within the clinical nursing practice (according to the chosen specialization) and 20 hours are used for reflection on the learning experience via the electronic logbook. The internship can be realized in different institutions (practical hopping). Nursing instructors in training must also teach 120 hours supervised in Austria or abroad at nursing schools, universities etc. Through the practical training the community partners gain new insights and receive up-to-date (research) results on the special field.
