NURSING (second-cycle studies)

Second-cycle Nursing Studies are designed for the graduates of the first-cycle Nursing Studies.

Thanks to those studies, students can acquire broad, modern knowledge in the field of medical sciences, social sciences and in the selected fields of specialist nursing. Owing to the curriculum content, students are prepared to implement the standards of professional care among patients of all ages and various health conditions. They are also introduced to professional practice. Expected educational outcomes ensure that students not only use their knowledge in specific practical activity, but they are also able to perceive human being and his/her health problems in a holistic way.

Moreover, graduates of the second-cycle Nursing Studies are equipped with skills which let them conduct scientific research and publicize the results, organise their own work and the work of their subordinates, supervise nursing care, develop and implement health education programmes, including the needs of a local community.

Graduates are prepared to take up third cycle (doctoral) studies.
