Continuing education

Switzerland’s healthcare system is highly dynamic. Increasing longevity, chronic illnesses and technological advances all mean that wide-ranging expectations are placed on you as a nursing professional. Our task is to provide you with the skills and knowledge you need to meet the nursing challenges of the future.

There is significant demand for nursing professionals with specialised knowledge and skills in the field of acute and chronic illnesses.

The continuing education we offer is directed towards providing the best possible nursing support and advice to patients, their families and the healthcare teams looking after them. We offer a wide range of Master of Advanced Studies (MAS), Diploma of Advanced Studies (DAS), Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) and other continuing education courses in Geriatric Nursing, Oncological Nursing, Patient and Family Education and Paedriatic Nursing. All these courses are practice-oriented in their approach and are based on the most recent insights gained from the research and development work being carried out in these fields. 
Completing a course of further education at the ZHAW prepares you for the nursing challenges of the future.
