Welcome to the web-page of Finnish Doctoral Programme in Nursing Science
Finnish Doctoral Programme in Nursing Science was established in 1995. It is a national doctoral programme steered and coordinated by the Department of Nursing Science, University of Turku collaborating with five Finnish Universities: University of Eastern Finland, University of Oulu, University of Tampere, University of Turku and Åbo Akademi University. The programme has a full-time co-ordinator.
The aim of the Finnish Doctoral Programme in Nursing Science is to educate both nationally and internationally recognized researchers in the field of nursing science as well as to promote the development of multidisciplinary research in the nursing science field internationally and nationally.
The programme has many activities. There are nine full-time doctoral students aiming to reach PhD-degree with the main discipline of nursing science. The programme is actively arranging PhD-courses, seminars and symposiums in different parts of Finland and it supports the national mobility of students by rotations in research groups in different universities. The programme also has active international collaboration.
The programme is working based on general strategy, international strategy and quality assurance strategy.
