I am head of the department Healthcare at Arcada and together with my team we strive to offer high-quality and innovative educations in the care sector. Learning in all its various forms fascinates me and I am constantly curious to find new and alternative solutions to pedagogical issues. At the same time, I am a critical theorist who considers both power and powerlessness in relation to learning.

I believe in the power of education and I am convinced that the main health promotion action is education. That is also why we in nursing education team emphasize the evidence-based approach. The research at the department is about building a better care reality for our graduate students. I am very interested in creating strong Nordic research networks with the same ambition.

I also teach different leadership courses with a focus on leadership in social and health care. In addition, I am part of a few Nordic research networks around the nurse's work image in the future. Feel free to get in touch if you have questions or suggestions for cooperation - together we can certainly create a better tomorrow.
