International Diversity


​​The BZ Pflege is Switzerland’s largest centre for higher education in nursing and training as well as continuing education and​ training in nursing. Every year, our staff of more than 250 dedicated professionals trains around 400 students to become registered nurses. 

Putting the human factor first

Ever since the BZ Pflege was established, our international strategy has been committed to fostering socio-cultural diversity. In doing so, we place the human factor and the notion of service at the heart of everything we do. This approach reflects the BZ Pflege's mission statement and its core values:

«Leading nursing care into the future.» Innovative – practical – recognised

Valuable work experience for members of staff
