Course of Study in Nursing

In the 2015-2016 academic year the Catholic University of Croatia (CUC) launched its first course of study in the field of biomedicine and health.
Recognising the need for a modern development of nursing as a profession and the European development standards of nursing as a biomedical discipline, the course of study in Nursing at the CUC will be organised on two levels:

–a three-year undergraduate university course of study in Nursing, upon which the academic title of University Bachelor of Nursing (univ. bacc. med. techn.) is received,

– a two-year graduate university course of study in Nursing, upon which the academic title of Master of Nursing (mag. med. techn.) is received.

Undergraduate studies in Nursing are organised in a way that enables students to acquire basic knowledge and skills for the provision of nursing care within the framework of a multidisciplinary approach in modern health care.

Graduate studies in Nursing offer further education in the field of nursing for University Bachelors, with an emphasis on the advancement of their professional and scientific qualifications that will allow them to practise evidence-based medicine and continue their academic career and scientific approach to nursing.Since both courses of studies are offered within a Catholic integrated university, students will get the unique opportunity to acquire biomedical knowledge not only through the aspect of nursing as a medical profession, but also as a social discipline that cares for the most vulnerable – those who are ill. Therefore, courses in theology, philosophy and nursing ethics as well as health psychology and mental health, with special emphasis on palliative medicine, will give these studies at our University a somewhat different aspect from those offered thus far in Croatia’s educational system.
We are confident that these newly established studies in Nursing will enhance nursing in Croatia and enable future generations to modernise professional and scientific approach to health care with an emphasis on humaneness.
