University course in nursing

In the academic year 2015/2016 Catholic University of Croatia (CUC) initiated the first study program in the field of biomedicine and health care.

Based on the identified needs for the modern development of nursing as a profession, as well as the European standards in the development of nursing as a scientific biomedical discipline, the university course in nursing at CUC will be organized in two levels:

– undergraduate university course in nursing lasting three years, upon completion of which students acquire the academic title of Bachelor of nursing (univ. bacc. med. techn.)

– graduate university course in nursing lasting two years, upon completion of which students acquire the academic title of Master of nursing (mag. med. techn.).

We believe that the newly established university course in nursing will improve the level of nursing in Croatia and allow future generations to modernize professional and scientific approach to health care with an emphasis on humanity.

Undergraduate University course in nursing is organized in a way that allows its students to acquire basic knowledge and skills needed to provide nursing care within a multidisciplinary context of the modern health care.

Graduate university course in nursing will offer the bachelors of nursing to continue their education in the field of nursing, with an emphasis on improving their technical and scientific competencies, which will enable them to practice evidence-based medicine, and pursue an academic career and foster a scientific approach to nursing.

As the two study programs take place within an integrated Catholic University, students will get a unique opportunity to acquire biomedical knowledge not only through the prism of nursing as a health profession, but also as a social discipline providing care to people, particularly to the most vulnerable ones – the sick. Therefore, the provided courses in theology, philosophy and ethics in nursing, as well as health psychology and mental health, with particular emphasis on palliative medicine, will make possible a somewhat different training of nurses than the one offered so far within the Croatian education system.

“Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier.”
