Nursing and caregiving qualifications

Since the restructuring of nursing and caregiving activities under the Federal Act of 13 December 2002 on Vocational and Professional Education and Training, new training programmes and ordinances have been steadily developed for the nursing and caregiving professions, at both upper-secondary level (VET) and tertiary level (professional education and higher education). As many different professionals interact closely with one another, review and revision of training programmes becomes an extraordinarily complex endeavour.

OdASanté has therefore commissioned the Swiss Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training SFIVET to develop tools and methods for the coordinated review and revision of current and future training programmes and qualifications in nursing and caregiving.
