Nursing studies at Arcada: safe and culture-friendly with high-quality teaching

Published: 04.01.2023 / Blog / Student life

Did you know that Arcada has a unique patient safety and learning centre where students in the healthcare sector get to practice their future profession in a safe way? The learning centre, along with many other things, has made Nursing student Mushiatu convinced that Arcada was the right choice for her.

“Being the centre for advanced technological experiences and diversified opportunities for the future is what I like most about Arcada. The learning environment is multinational, safe, and culture-friendly with modernized learning facilities.

Arcada’s Nursing programme is well-organized based on evidence, and compatible with the job market’s competency requirements. Having started my studies with level B1 Finnish language skills, communications in skill labs and simulation lessons helped to improve my Finnish language skills.

Teaching methods incorporated with eLearning platforms have allowed me to learn more easily at my own pace. Arcada’s unique simulation centre has enabled me to transfer my theoretical knowledge into practical skills which has enhanced my competence and confidence as a student and future nurse to-be, with the possibility of becoming a nurse entrepreneur as well.

Arcada’s cooperation with DIAK has given me a different perspective and refreshing experience of different learning facilities and teaching methods. Working with DIAK nursing students boosted my cooperative and interpersonal skills as well as expanded my connection with other course mates.

The journey of my internships has been successful thanks to Arcada’s good teaching, guidance, and collaboration with the healthcare industry. I am grateful to Arcada for my successful career path as a registered nurse with diversified opportunities in the healthcare job market where “the sky is my limit”.”
