Independent nursing practice covers independent clinical decision-making and clinical management in nursing, in collaboration with the patient/citizen and their relatives, in stable, acute and/or complex care and treatment. The focus is on the ability, independently and critically, to assess and provide nursing care involving patients/citizens and across professions, sectors and institutions in the health service.

The training develops clinical competencies and makes use of knowledge of theory. You learn by taking part in practical nursing interventions.
