"I graduated with a Bachelor of Healthcare in Nursing. It was an adventurous decision to make but it was worthy and memorable. It helped me to have no fear in trying something new and being in a multicultural atmosphere. Also, various types of group work were challenging. However, this helped me a lot to see the different perspectives of others."

“Moving to Finland for my studies was one of the best decisions. A country known to have an exemplary education system. Studying for my Nursing degree happened within a well-founded learning environment that integrates well-being and work life balance. Peers from diverse cultures made it possible to experience the world without traveling it. Now I work as lecturer in the healthcare department at Jamk.“

-Kamau Suleiman, Nursing, graduated in 2013 

“What a journey it has been!! Moving to a foreign country, new language, totally different culture….. I was both nervous and excited, however today I can happily say it was the best decision I ever made. Studying my nursing degree in Finland not only provided me with the professional skills and knowledge it required but also gave me the opportunity to experience diverse cultures, learn new languages and build everlasting relationships. Jamk provided a holistic approach to learning with emphasis on strong understanding of  foundations while providing individual student oriented support. I currently work as a Nurse Advisor/Nurse Program Coordinator @IQVIA.“
