Profile of Nursing Education

The Katholische Stiftungshochschule München (KSH) University of Applied Sciences has offered the Bachelor's degree programme in Nursing Education since 2005. It is a scientific and practice-oriented university degree programme which conveys professional competence for fields of activity within nursing education.


The students are supported in terms of fostering full character development. Upon successful completion of the degree programme, you are able to develop an independent attitude to professional teaching activities, based on a critically reflected set of fundamental values. As a future educator for the nursing professions, you are thus prepared for broad-based teaching.

Structure of the curriculum

With the degree in Nursing Education (B.A.), you are able to independently and competently handle tasks in the teaching and vocational training sector, and take on roles related to apprenticeships, advanced and further training, as well as in the organisation of educational institutions and consulting.


The standard period of study is 7 semesters, of which one semester is a practical semester. The degree programme culminates in the awarding of a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in Nursing Education. The workload per semester is 30 ECTS credit points (CP). The degree programme has a modular structure.


The degree programme in nursing education is divided into the following segments:


Segment I: 1st - 4th semester

  • The first part of the course conveys basic educational skills. Until the end of the 2nd semester, there is the option to change to the Nursing Management degree programme.

Segment II: 5th semester (practical semester)


Segment III: 6th - 7th semester

  • This segment covers advanced, project-oriented modules in the subject and the compulsory elective modules, with particular emphasis on using the Skills and Simulation Laboratory at our faculty.
  • A Bachelor's thesis must be completed in the third segment.

Prospects & perspectives

Nursing educators are not only in demand at vocational schools (Berufsfachschulen) in the healthcare sector, and institutes for advanced and further training. There are diverse career options in patient education, health education at health insurance and insurance companies, at business consulting firms, academies, publishers, etc. You can also work as a freelancer or pursue a scientific career.


Tasks and roles of future nursing educators:

  • Nursing education
  • Advanced and further training (teaching and training)
  • Supervision and training of interns, nursing assistants, etc.
  • Performance planning, consulting and evaluation (as a nursing expert)
  • Analysis/evaluation activities (as a nursing expert)
  • Health promotion and health education
  • Scientific career
  • Publishing activity (copy editing/proofreading)
  • Business consulting (development of training courses)

The degree in nursing education is recognised in Bavaria as advanced or further training for the practical instruction of geriatric nursing, and as an additional vocational pedagogical qualification for practical nursing instruction. The degree simultaneously grants state recognition as a leader of inpatient facilities, insofar as proof can be provided that an internship of at least 40 hours has been completed in an inpatient facility for nursing and geriatric care.
