Nursing Studies (General)

Study Cycle: First Cycle (Undergraduate)
Faculty: Health Sciences
Programme Code: NS
Academic year: 2022 / 2023
Title: Bachelor of Nursing (General)
ECTS: 180 (3 years)
Decision:

The purpose of the nurse's education is to meet the health needs of the individual, the group and the entire social community, as follows:

  • Studying the impact of environmental risk factors;
  • Providing health care to certain groups of the population (infants, young and preschool children, school children and youth, women, the elderly workers, athletes, people with disabilities in psychophysical development, etc.);
  • Prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of patients with chronic non-communicable diseases;
  • Early detection, prevention and control of infectious diseases;
  • Control examinations in order to detect diseases early and prevent sport injuries;
  • Conductingemergency medical care and home treatment;
  • Polyvalent patronage activity, etc.

Taking into account the conclusion that in vocational education more attention is paid to theoretical knowledge, and less to practical skills and competencies of students, as well as the insufficient involvement of employers in the whole process of education and training, our goal is through the professional study program "General nursery” to contribute to the above challenges so that the focus of teaching will be more oriented towards the practical teaching classes, i.e. clinical teaching.

Nurses make up the largest workforce within the clinical healthcare industry. Nursing careers offer a wide range of roles and a wide range of responsibilities.

They work closely with physicians as an integral part of their patient healthcare team. Physicians make some key decisions regarding diagnosis, treatment, and medication, and the role of nurses is to administer that care on an ongoing basis in order to ensure the patient's successful recovery.

In fact, nurses work wherever physicians work, including hospitals, medical offices, clinics, guesthouses, emergency rooms, intensive care, home and school, interacting with patients to facilitate and assist in their recovery and overall welfare.
