The training of the nursing professions was reorganized through the amendment to health and nursing care. Nursing professionals are now being trained as a Bachelor of Science in Health Studies with professional qualifications in health and nursing. In order to counteract the great need for skilled workers in the field of health and nursing care, a unique implacement foundation model was designed in Upper Austria for people changing and returning to the profession. "Implacement Foundation" means qualification measures to train sought-after specialists for the needs (in this case for health and nursing). Cooperation partners are the legal entities of the hospitals, the University of Applied Sciences for Health Professions Upper Austria, the respective implacement foundation and the employment service.

A prerequisite for anyone interested in the foundation is to register with the Public Employment Service as a job seeker. The previous employment relationship was terminated by the employer or terminated by mutual agreement. The foundation applicant must provide evidence of at least 52 weeks employment prior to termination of the employment relationship. There is no age limit with this financing model.

With this funding model, students have the following entitlement to benefits during their studies:

  • Foundation unemployment benefit in the amount of the unemployment benefit entitlement
  • Full insurance through the labor market service
  • monthly "training-related grant" - currently in the amount of € 200, -
  • possibly mileage allowance
  • Exemption from tuition fees

Every year, a contingent of funded study places is available at the locations of the Upper Austrian University of Applied Sciences in Health Care where the Bachelor's degree in health and nursing is offered (Linz, Wels Steyr, Ried, Vöcklabruck).
