Nurse and Specialist Nurse - distance education

The Department of Health, Education and Technology has signed an agreement with Region Norrbotten and all municipalities in the county regarding VFU sites for the courses that are given at the department.

The VFU sites we have under agreements are in hospitals and health centers within Region Norrbotten and within municipal operations in Norrbotten's municipalities.

The whole county is our catchment area and the places we have under the agreements are the places that must be allocated for each course. This may involve some travel and accommodation elsewhere during the VFU periods.
When the site access is insufficient on any location, draw is applied.

Operational training places within inpatient care:
Sunderby hospital, Piteå river valley hospital, Kalix hospital, Gällivare hospital and Kiruna hospital.

Business places in primary care:
All health centers in the county

Business places within the municipalities:
Elderly care: All municipalities in the county
Psychiatric care: Luleå, Boden, Kalix, Gällivare, Kiruna and Piteå municipality
