Study programme descriptionThe aim of the study programme “Nursing” is to provide students with a scientific foundation for professional activity, developing the ability to independently conduct scientific research, skills and techniques to act independently in different care situations.

Studies are organised in the form of student-centred approach as its basic principle. Study groups are small and the study process is personalised. Main study courses are offered in modules: Knowledge of humans and organisms through the acquisition of theoretical knowledge; Subjects that develop social, communicative and organisational skills throughout all the years of study.
