Nursing program is divided into 6 semesters and duration of studies is three academic years, equivalent to 180 ECTS. Each semester is 30 credits.
Studies include the basis of:
• basic biomedical sciences

The content of the program is in full compliance with European requirements for a proper and appropriate training in nursing. In our curriculum, nursing care is attached to each specific subject making them integrated with each other. In this program students create a clear vision for building a normal human body by physiological, anatomical and biochemical. Also gain knowledge about pathological anatomy, microbiology, infectious diseases, etc..
Main part on the ECTS are carried by characterize forming subjects as internal diseases, surgical diseases, pediatric diseases, obstetric – gynecology diseases, medical emergencies etc. In every professional subjects program will be also included specific nursing care with the intention that students besides knowing the disease also having to know how to understand specific cares toward the diseased people. A special place will be left for optional subjects and for those with character forming ability. Starting from the second semester of the first year in the teaching curricula is planned a professional practice aiming to develop students’ knowledge to serve clients/patients in different medical situations.
Drafting of these objectives and curricula is made starting from the experience of our public nursing schools and also by other faculties similar to European and particularly those Slovenian. The experience of these last is taken into consideration even the fact that some of these students after graduation to apply for employment in this country and the experience so far has shown that they are successful.
