Postgraduate Programme student in Specialist Nursing tells all

Louise Andersson, 31, is a student in the second and final semester in the postgraduate programme in specialist nursing in intensive care.

Before beginning, she had high expectations of the programme, that it would give her the knowledge and the tools she needs to feel secure in her future work as an intensive care nurse. She feels that these expectations have been met.

"I have worked a few years as a nurse in emergency surgical care, which has given me considerable experience. I consider it to be beneficial to constantly strive to develop, both personally and professionally, to obtain in-depth knowledge and expertise. I can then provide good care in the meeting with the patient. I have therefore always had the goal of continuing my studies to become a specialist nurse and intensive care felt like a challenging, developing and stimulating choice."

Applying for the programme at the Sahlgrenska Academy was a given for Louise. The faculty's research profile and the proximity to Sahlgrenska University Hospital, with its large range of intensive care, were crucial. Of course, the fact that Louise did her bachelor's degree here also played a part.

Louise sees the future in a positive light. Her assessment is that the need for specialist nurses in general and intensive care nurses in particular is very great.

"In the future, I see myself working as an intensive care nurse at a general intensive care ward. There, I have the opportunity to apply my new knowledge and at the same time learn a great deal."
