Nurse – caregiver
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.

Program bolničar negovalec zajema predmete, ki so splošnoizobraževalne narave, ter tiste, ki pokrivajo vsa potrebna znanja, ki jih bolničarji negovalci potrebujejo za uspešno delo v delovnem okolju. Strokovni moduli se delijo na obvezni in izbirni del. Kolikšen del predmetnika boste morali ‘pokriti’ za uspešno zaključen program, bomo ugotavljali že ob prvem srečanju. Pri vpisu se bomo namreč z vami pogovorili o vaših pričakovanjih, interesih in željah. Vaš program oziroma osebni izobraževalni načrt bomo nato oblikovali na podlagi razgovora. Če v zvezi z izobraževalnim programom že imate nekaj znanja in obvladate določene spretnosti, vam niti ne bo treba opravljati vseh obveznosti, ampak vam bomo določene vnaprej priznali na podlagi ustreznih dokazil.
