The core values of the Degree Programme in Nursing and Health Care include respect for individuals, human dignity, confidentiality, responsibility and high quality professional conduct.

The registered nurse is able to support people in health and wellbeing promotion, maintenance of health, and care for the ill in a holistic way. The nurse is an expert who carries out and develops nursing independently and in multiprofessional teams. The registered nurse can work in the service of primary health care, special health care, private sector or third sector organisations.

The professional competencies of registered nurses consist of ethical conduct, health promotion, decision making, guidance and teaching, collaboration, research and development, leadership, multicultural nursing, societal activities, clinical nursing, and medication. The competencies are based on evidence based nursing, nursing science and other disciplines such as medicine, social and behavioural sciences.

Learning of nursing includes both evaluation of prior knowledge and conduct in a reflective, critical and ethical way, realisation of new ways of action, and processing of personal attitudes. The starting point of learning is the multidimensional reality and knowledge of many levels. Learning rises from the key competence needs of the professional field.
