The Bachelor of Science HES-SO in Nursing Science is a degree programme that looks to the future. It is estimated that Switzerland will need to recruit more than 25,000 new nursing staff by the year 2020. The Health Sciences degree programmes cover a wide range of professions and offer a great variety of career perspectives, in nursing, emergency care, long-term care, palliative care, and community health.
Future nurses can rely on the skills of the teaching staff, who divide their time between teaching and research. Based in Sion, the Nursing Science degree programme and the associated research institute combine their resources to provide the best possible training for future health professionals, and offer their skills for the support of the social and health sectors.
