Department of Nursing Science

Welcome to the homepages of the Department of Nursing Science at the University of Turku. Nursing Science was established at the University of Turku in 1986 and the Department has developed into a diverse education and research unit. We have bachelor, masters and PhD programmes in nursing science. On masters’ level, the student can select to concentrate in clinical nursing science, gerontological and mental health nursing, as well as teachers’ programme or research path.

There are eight research programmes in the Department. The programmes produce new innovative knowledge for empowering patients, population and professionals. Research is made in multidisciplinary collaboration in close relationship with health care and nursing practice. The Department on Nursing Science is an active international collaborator both in education and research.

You will find further information about education, research, studying and details about the faculty from this site. There are also the pages of the Adaptus, the student union of our students.
