Our school is a part of the School Centre in Slovenj Gradec. There are approximately 400 students at our school It is a secondary vocational school that educates students for two different professions: a nurse (a four year programme) and a nursing assistant (a three year programme). Our students have practice work in different local health institutions, in the local hospital, health centres and nursing homes in the region and others.
The students also participate in various activities after school. They volunteer and work with patients in the hospital, spend quality time with the elderly in the nursing homes. They visit primary school and kindergartens to educate children and promote health education.
The students come from the local region. They are from different kinds of social backgrounds, they are of different nationalities (mostly from the former Yugoslav Republic) and different religions. It is very important for their future profession to be open-minded and without any prejudice. It is important that they posses social and emotional skills necessary for working with people.
