Why study this programme?

Modern health care cannot be imagined without the important and significant contribution of nurses. In the training of general practice nurses, we aim for graduates to become highly professional nursing professionals who, while working, put the latest nursing science knowledge and technologies into practice and raise the professional level of nursing. The professional activity of a nurse is a complex interdisciplinary process involving theory and practice, e.g. the knowledge, skills and abilities acquired by the nurse are the means that are applied in the context of the professional activity of the nurse in acquiring a quality professional choice. Well-paid, attractive, popular – these are the arguments followed by most students choosing the profession of general practice nurse.

Study environment

General Practice Nursing programme is characterized by the integration of theoretical and practical studies. During practical studies, real situations are simulated, which imitate patients and their care in a hospital environment, i.e. real medical environment. The simulation of care procedures enables to create various clinical situations in a student safe environment without any harm to the patient. Artificial patients and body parts, such as mannequins are used. Practical studies are carried out in small groups with a possibility to acquire practical skills not only in clinical simulation laboratories but also in real working environments: hospitals of various profiles, healthcare centres, communities and patient home environment. 50 % of studies is devoted to practical training. Students have a possibility to finish part of the studies abroad. Study programme is distinct for internationality and close cooperation relations with foreign partners.


The graduate is granted with a right to work independently or in the healthcare institutions of various healthcare levels that provide healthcare services for people of various age groups, disabled, families and community.
