In the third Bologna cycle, you can enrol in the Health Care Sciences doctoral study program. We have also accredited two postgraduate specialization study programs for further professional training - Health Care-Related Infections (60 ECTS) and Psychiatric Nursing (60 ECTS). We are in the process of preparing and accrediting other study programs.
We enrolled our first students in 2007 and saw the first graduated registered nurses enter the workforce in 2010. In 2012, we celebrated the first graduates of our Master's program. They significantly contribute to the development of evidence-based work in nursing care and health care and foster the awareness that improving health is a key dimension and responsibility of a modern health care system that needs to touch all sectors of society and activity. We direct our students towards acquiring competencies that enable them to work and take responsibility for more complex forms of work within the health care system as well as outside it. Our doctoral candidates that we expect to graduate within the next 4 to 5 years will make important contributions towards the development of health care science knowledge internationally and in Slovenia, which will influence the development of science as well as the application of new findings in the health care system and more broadly.
