Catch the near Future at University College Lillebaelt
The Department of Nursing at University College Lillebaelt has developed a module focused on the demands and needs of the healthcare system in the near future.
The focus of the module is the tasks and challenges of the nursing profession concerning caring, research and ethics.
Would you like to study in an international atmosphere?
You and your fellow students will study and investigate the competences nurses will have to acquire and possess in order to meet the future demands to the nursing profession.
At the Department of Nursing at University College Lillebaelt we will try to Catch the Near Future by:
- attracting attention on the new challenges in the primary and secondary health services: accelerated patient pathways, discharge from acute department after 24- 48 hours of admission to treatment and care in the patient’s own home.
- zooming in on the demands to the nurse in the brief encounter where focus is on ethics and evidence based practice – in relation to a patient with a different cultural and religious approach to health and disease than the patient.
- identifying ways of collaborating and overlapping areas between the primary and secondary health sector.
- study possibilities such as flipped classroom and simulated scenaries.
The module is equivalent to 15 ECTS and consists of three courses and a final project and exam.
Course 1: Nursing (4 ECTS)
Course 2: Philosophy, Religion and Ethics (4 ECTS)
Course 3: Science theories and Research Methodology (4 ECTS)
Study visits are included during the courses, and the module is finished by project work and a written exam (3 ECTS).
