Associate Degree


Nursing is a bottleneck profession. So the chances are real that you can get started immediately after graduating. The model daytime study track takes three years, but you can also opt for one of our many tailored tracks.

At least half of your programme will consist of internships. After two modules you will receive a certificate that allows you to get started as a healthcare assistant. After five modules you are a certified graduate nurse with a broad theoretical and practical knowledge, which you can use in every domain.


The Associate Degree in Nursing is organised on the campuses of IVV Sint-Vincentius (Ghent, Eeklo, Oudenaarde, Zottegem) and ZoWe Nursing (Bruges, Ostend).
