More information about the programme

Radiology clinics today work with both the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, activities in which radiology nurses play a key part.

The ever-increasing complexity of radiological methods can be alienating for patients of any age. It is therefore important that radiology nurses can reassure such patients with well-developed communicative skills that can help to build up a secure relationship between them. Radiology nurses also take the decisions that lead to the most effective form of examination.

The study programme in Radiography provides students with a knowledge of radiography, which is to say the use of X-ray methods to examine patients, and the interpretation of the results thus obtained. Students learn a great deal about radiation and how the equipment they use is designed. They also learn about different diseases and how they show up in X-rays. Teaching methods include lectures, seminars, laboratory work, and clinical training.

Students also gain an early insight into their future career as the on-site training starts in term one and continues for a five-week block each term. Students also gain experience of the work of radiology nurses at a healthcare unit and within the accident and emergency services.

In order to be accepted as an exchange student at KI the applicant must be enrolled at a university that has a written exchange agreement with KI for the specific study programme of interest. Exchange students should be nominated by their home institution. The final decision on admission will be made by KI.

After graduation

Radiology nurses work at radiology clinics in both the public and private sectors.
