Specialized Nursing

Care-giving is the most noble vocation in the world!

In addition to the basic nursing curriculum, it is possible to have professional higher education (60 ECTS) for those who have already worked in the field of nursing. The aim of the specialized nursing education curriculum is to allow the nurses who have completed basic nursing education to develop their abilities of critical analysis, independent decision-making and operational capacities as a specialized nurse to work in the health care system at different levels. Specialized nursing training ends with final examination in the specialist area. In Estonia it is possible to specialize in four different fields: intensive care nursing, mental health nursing, clinical nursing and health nursing. A curriculum is taught in Estonian.
