With an aging global population, caring for persons with dementia is one of the greatest health care challenges of the 21st century. The Silvia nurse programme will prepare you to gain knowledge and to understand the aging process and specific care needs of both younger persons and older persons with dementia including ethical perspectives and a palliative care context. The programme will furthermore prepare you to lead change in dementia care and improve the quality of care provided for persons with dementia and their families.
The International Silvia Nursing Programme is offered through distance learning on a part-time basis via Sophia Education Online (SEO). In order to participate in this education, students must have access to a computer with an Internet connection.
There are two semesters in the programme. Each semester runs over a period of 20 weeks with two courses per semester. Each course offers, upon successful completion, 7.5 higher education credits (HE).
The educational approach of the programme is based on student centeredness and student learning through active participation and study motivation. The programme offers online lectures and workshops, carefully planned to allow for high level academic discussions and learning. To ensure high quality, research proximity and clinical relevance, attention is paid to include a diverse group of lecturers with expertise in both clinical health care and academic research, in various subjects related to dementia.
