Why become a caregiver?

Because good caregivers are exceptional people.

Not only in Slovenia, everywhere in the world the population is ageing, which increases the need for health and well-being. Families and nursing homes all over the world are looking for these exceptional people who will genuinely care for the elderly, who find joy in helping the elderly every day, and who are trustworthy, experienced and professionally qualified.

The need for good caregivers is growing and more and more people see career opportunities in the profession precisely because of the increase in the elderly population.

As a caregiver, you will be able to care for people with disabilities, the sick, people who are no longer able to look after themselves, usually older people. Your responsibilities while working with them will consist of helping patients with bathing and eating, cleaning their homes, shopping and paying bills, monitoring vital signs and administering medication. It may sound simple, but as a professional health care provider, you will be greatly appreciated and trusted by those in need.

Course book

The Nurse Practitioner programme includes subjects of a general educational nature, as well as all the necessary knowledge that nurse practitioners need to work successfully in their work environment. Professional modules are divided into compulsory and optional parts. How much of the course you will have to do in order to successfully complete the programme will be determined already at the first meeting. When registering, we will talk with you about your expectations, interests and wishes. Based on the interview, we will then design your personal education plan. If you already have some knowledge and have mastered certain skills in relation to the educational programme, you will not even have to fulfill all the obligations as we will acknowledge some of them in advance based on the relevant evidence submitted.

On this basis, we then work together to design a learning path that is tailored to you:
