Technology-based education in nursing 


Against the backdrop of a cross-border labor market, the education and continuing education of nursing professionals must be met with a transnational and didactically as well as technologically innovative approach. 


The nursing education of the future, and thus the health care of the population, faces great challenges. The demand for nursing professionals in the Lake Constance region will increase dramatically in the coming years and can already no longer be adequately met with adequately qualified 

In all likelihood, these requirements can no longer be met with traditional curricula at place-based universities.

The didactics of this project therefore follow completely new approaches to location-independent learning with the almost unlimited possibilities of digitization, and in doing so also take particular account of the possibilities for learning at the workplace.
