Why you should study Healthcare and Nursing Education

With a Master's degree, you can not only expand, deepen and specialise your knowledge in a specific field. In the course of your IU studies, you will also be taught more in-depth content, methodologies and skills, which many employers regard as an additional professional qualification. In many professions, a Master's degree is a prerequisite for a career or an academic career. In addition to significantly more attractive career opportunities, possible experience abroad and valuable contacts in the business world, you can usually also expect a significantly better starting salary. This means that an internationally recognised Master's degree offers you a whole repertoire of advantages that you could be denied with a pure Bachelor's degree.  

This is what your Master’s degree in Healthcare and Nursing Education at IU looks like

In the four-semester Master's degree programme in Healthcare and Nursing Education at IU International University, you will acquire all the relevant skills that will distinguish you as a future teacher in initial, further and continuing education. You can later apply the knowledge you have acquired in education management, leadership or research methodology, for example, to examine future healthcare professionals. In addition, you can deepen your knowledge and specialise even more. In addition to various modules on learning and development theories and research methodology, the curriculum also includes the areas of pedagogy in adult education, didactics in health professions and health care management. 

A look into the future: what you will be able to do after graduating

As a graduate with a Master's degree in Health and Nursing Education, you are qualified for teaching in the health professions and for initial, continuing and further training or a management function in a vocational school context. Accordingly, you are in demand as a specialist in the health and care sector. An academic career with a connection to the health professions or educational science is also conceivable. After your Master's degree, countless professional opportunities are open to you. As a health educator or nursing educator, you will be responsible for the conception, implementation and evaluation of teaching units. As a school director or head of an educational institution, you will be responsible for staff and management. Or as a consultant in the quality management of health insurance funds and health care companies, you contribute to process optimisation.
