Key skills

The nursing profession is currently undergoing a major expansion and shift in focus. The rising number of elderly people with dementia symptoms presents perhaps the greatest challenge facing providers of long-term and extra-mural services. Top-level nursing skills and new, innovative organisational structures are essential to ensuring the provision of quality nursing care in Austria.

To meet these sophisticated challenges, nursing professionals need thorough training, the skills required to carry out policy-related tasks and the ability to provide advisory services, as well as expertise in applied nursing science. These skills are best acquired in the course of a university education programme.
