Finnish Doctoral Education Network in Nursing Science
Note! Currently the Finnish Doctoral Education Network in Nursing Science is coordinated by University of Tampere. Please see their pages to find updated information about the network and upcoming events:

Finnish Doctoral Education Network in Nursing Science (previous Finnish Doctoral Programme in Nursing Science) was established in 1995. It is a national doctoral education network steered and coordinated by the Department of Nursing Science, University of Turku collaborating with five Finnish Universities: University of Eastern Finland, University of Oulu, University of Tampere, University of Turku and Åbo Akademi University. The network has a part-time co-ordinator.

The aim of the Finnish Doctoral Education Network in Nursing Science is to educate both nationally and internationally recognized researchers in the field of nursing science as well as to promote the development of multidisciplinary research in the nursing science field internationally and nationally.
The network has many activities. There are seven full-time doctoral candidates aiming to reach PhD-degree with the main discipline of nursing science. The network is actively arranging doctoral courses, seminars and symposiums in different parts of Finland and it supports the national mobility of doctoral candidates by rotations in research groups in different universities. The network also has active international collaboration.
The network is working based on general strategy, international strategy and quality assurance strategy.
In this web-page, you can find information about the network, the doctoral candidates, the courses and the connections to links in the field of research and doctoral education in nursing science. You can also partly find  the copies of the course material. We ask a permission for including material into the web pages from all teachers. In the case, that we do not have permission, only the post-graduate students are able to receive the material.
