Nursing career model

At the University Hospital Zurich, we not only want to attract the very best professionals but also offer the best development opportunities and continually develop in-house expertise. That's why there are also career models for nursing and MTTB allied health care professions. The nursing care model is comprised of eight stages which cover the entire spectrum from accredited nursing professional to nursing based on scientific research.

Your progress through these levels depends on your interests, knowledge, experience and the annual appraisal interview. In an innovation-friendly and respectful working environment, your superiors and various programs support you along the way. These include a training program at the beginning, various continuing education and training services, accompanied tutoring by experienced nursing and MTTB allied health care experts throughout your career and an effective learning network.

We offer continuous inter-professional MTTB allied health care training programs to support our employees in their duties and to empower them both in leadership and occupational training.
