  • Special features regarding teaching
    Teaching takes place primarily in the form of seminars and in small groups. The aim is to enable students to develop academically-based judgement as an essential basis of their professional practice as well as education, using an action-oriented approach. Teaching primarily takes place on two blocked study days a week. 95% of students complete the course in the standard period of study. In addition to the student-teacher ratio, didactic diversity with high student activation and good digital equipment are profile characteristics of the department.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    As part of mobility windows during the placement and the writing of the Bachelor's or the Master's thesis, students have the option of doing a stay abroad. As part of this, the Faculty of Healthcare at the KatHO NRW offers individual practice support for students who cannot attend the accompanying courses to the placements due to a study semester abroad or a work placement within Germany. The Applied Nursing Science degree course offers the opportunity to complete an intern-ship semester.
