Realization
Teaching and learning takes place by means of self-directed independent studies, lectures, study assignments, seminars and a practicum/internship under supervision. Participation in seminars and the practicum/internship placement is mandatory.

Examination
Written exam and/or seminar
Assessment of professional expertise
The grading criteria for Pass (G) is stated in the Study Guide.

Ordinarily only one reassignment will be allowed for the course with regard to the practicum/internship placement. If there are special reasons, an additional reassignment may be granted. What is meant by “special reasons” are those reasons stated in the Regulations from the Swedish National Agency for Higher Education, HSVFS 1999:1.


Remarks
The course is offered as part of a second-cycle study program within specialist training for nurse anesthetists and is a practicum/internship placement. This course, which contains a curricular segment with a practicum/internship (VFU element), is encompassed within the Special Rules for practicum/internship placements according to the decision of the Head of Department at the Department of Health Sciences, Luleå University of Technology.

Having attained an approved standard (passing grade) the VFU curricular segment in this course constitutes a special prerequisite for future VFU courses.


Transition terms
The study program and syllabus is valid from the autumn term 2020 for the students who are then admitted to the educational program. Faculty program directors and heads of subject decide on individual study plans for students who have been admitted to a previous study program and who are resuming their studies, after a study break, according to the current study program and syllabus. If a course is no longer given or has undergone major changes, the students must be offered two opportunities for examination in the first year after the change has taken place, and then once a year for another 2 years, based on the study plan applicable at registration.
