Earlier application date to specialist nurse

Published: 15 November 2017

This year applications are submitted to the specialists nurse program at Luleå University of Technology by 15 March - one month earlier than the previous year. This makes notification of admission already in April.

– As they receive the notification letter at the end of April instead of during the vacation, nurses and employers get significantly more time to plan for education, says Åsa Engström, director of specialist nurses with a focus on ambulance care, anesthetic care and intensive care.

Easier to plan

The programs aimed at professionals have previously had problems with the short time between admission and term launch. Now, those who seek more time to plan and employers have easier to arrange for temporary work and leave of absence.

The difference is also that only one selection is made and the one assumed is not necessary to thank me for the location. However, it is very important to thank you for as short a time as possible, so that the place can be offered to the one who is on the reserve list.

The change for the autumn term 2018 is made in 19 universities across the country. The benefits raised from a college that were the first to try to advance the admission were; good with the applicant for the programs, fewer hopes for education start and better conditions from employers.

The application for the autumn term 2018 will be open from 15 February to 15 March.
