Objective: to describe the nursing education in Finland. Structure and programs: There are three levels in nursing education in Finland. Basic professional education for registered nurses is organised in polytechnics. After that, the graduated nurses can continue in masters' program and doctoral program in universities. In the universities, the masters' and doctoral programs were established in 1979 and at present these programs are in five universities. Ministry of Education controls both polytechnics and universities. Programs: In polytechnics, the length of the education for registered nurses (bachelor) is 4.5 years. In these programs, theoretical and practical studies are integrated and nurse teachers are responsible for all studies, although in nursing practice the students have mentors among staff nurses. Nurse teachers in polytechnics are masters' prepared. Masters’ and doctoral programs in universities: In universities, the length of masters' program are 3,5-4 years and doctoral programs around 5 years. On the masters' level, there are programs for nurse teachers and clinical nurse specialists with nursing science as main discipline. In clinical nurse specialist programs, there are acute clinical, elderly, preventive and family nursing options. Also, there are programs for health care and nursing administrators. In the universities, these programs are organised in nursing departments, which mainly belong to medical faculties (also to social sciences). Teaching is research oriented and all faculty members both teach and do research. Universities have formulated their research programs, and most of the students' masters' and doctoral thesis belong to these programs. In doctoral education, universities have their own programs but all five universities also belong to National Doctoral School in Nursing Science, supported by Finnish Academy. In this national school, doctoral methodological and nursing courses are arranged in collaboration, and also many international researches have been invited. International collaboration: International collaboration is very active both in polytechnics and universities. This collaboration in Europe is organised as part of Socrates-exchange program or based on bilateral agreements. Nordic countries have their own exchange system.
