Course Details

In the Academic Expert Perioperative Nursing further education course students acquire all the skills, which are necessary for this specialised field. The expertise in technical methodology, socio-communicative and scientific skills, which were already acquired in the training /study of healthcare and nursing are extended and intensified in this specialised field. These skills are conveyed within the framework of a scientifically-based further-education course combined with practical training at the University of Applied sciences for Healthcare Professions Upper Austria and at the professional placement. The accompanying internships offer the students the opportunity to realise and intensify their knowhow and acquired skills under expert guidance.

The further education course is divided into modules, which are partly offered on an inter-disciplinary basis. The curriculum is characterised by a balance between in-depth theoretical education, science and work experience in the various health institutions. Graduates of the further education course are in a position to offer full and comprehensive support and care to people, while combining the know how from the various disciplines. They have learned to act reflectively and autonomously in their professional daily routine and to act in accordance with their code of conduct.
