* Under development: Subject to consent from the church and state approval, Subject to church and state financing. This course replaces the existing Nursing dual degree programme which, as from the year 2020, no longer meets the legal requirements for the new Act for Nursing Professions (Pflegeberufegesetz).

Profile of Nursing

A career in nursing is varied, challenging and secure for the future. Highly qualified academic staff are required to care for the sick and needy.

The Katholische Stiftungshochschule München is one of the first universities in Bavaria to offer the newly designed Bachelor’s degree in Nursing (B.Sc.) qualifying for a professional career, as from the winter semester 2020/21.*

The Bachelor’s degree programme in Nursing qualifies graduates for work in practical nursing positions. People of all ages should receive evidence-based support, i.e. based on the latest scientific findings, through care in overcoming their individual illnesses. This care and support takes place in various specialist fields and care sectors, such as hospital clinics, outpatient services or nursing homes for the elderly or disabled.

Nursing staff trained at the KSH are distinguished above all by their responsible attitude, their reflective approach and evidence-based work. The close links between theory and practice in the degree programme provide students with current and application-oriented findings on caring for the sick and needy. The degree programme is also aligned with the Christian image of the people as one of the foundations for nursing care.

Structure of the curriculum

The standard period of study is 7 semesters of full time study, with 210 credit points. The degree programme culminates in the awarding of a Bachelor of Science degree (B.Sc.) in Nursing and professional accreditation as a specialist carer. The workload per semester is 30 ECTS credit points (CP).

The study contents are processed in the form of lectures, group work, case studies, simulation units, discussions, written tasks, etc..

Theoretical phases of study at the university alternate with practical phases. These take place in the clinical and ambulatory field. Practical phases are held at the premises of our cooperation partners and are coordinated and supervised by the Faculty of Healthcare and Nursing.

They cover 2,300 hours of practical activity, whereby a small portion of this is carried out in practical teaching units in the university’s Skills and Simulation Laboratory, where students practice applying the previously acquired theoretical knowledge in simulations of highly complex nursing situations. With the help of a simulation doll or simulation patient, different care situations and other typical work situations can be realistically tested and analysed.

The degree programme has a modular structure.

Prospects & perspectives

In accordance with Section 5 (3) PflBG, the skills required for the following tasks are taught:

  • Managing and designing highly complex nursing processes on the basis of scientifically-founded or scientifically-oriented decision making.
  • Applying advanced knowledge of nursing science principles, the social-institutional framework of nursing and the normative-institutional care system, as well as decisively shaping the further development of health and nursing care.
  • Developing research fields in professional nursing to meet the latest standards of substantiated findings and research-driven problem solving, as well as transferring new technologies into professional practice.
  • Recognising job-related needs for further education.
  • Critically reflecting on and analytically examining both theoretical and practical findings, developing and implementing scientifically-founded, innovative solutions to improve your own professional field of activity.
  • Involvement in developing quality management concepts, guidelines and expert standards.

The career service provides you with advice and support in professionally implementing these skills in the various fields and institutions of the sector when you complete your studies. There is also the option to further qualify for a scientific career in a Master’s or doctoral degree programme.
