The study program is comparable with similar international programs, and was the first accredited program for nursing studies at the level of higher education in the Republic of Slovenia to be in accordance with the EU Directive and the Bologna reform. During the course of study, there will be plenty of opportunities for practical work with patients. In line with the EU Directive, clinical training represents half of the study program (2300 hours out of 4600). When you graduate, you will be fully trained for working with patients. We will encourage you and help you to be successful both in your studies and in your professional career.
