SCHOOL INFORMATION


STUDY PROGRAMMES
At Secondary school of Nursing and Chemistry the following study programmes are carried out:

  • Nursing Assistant (3 years, Final examination),
  • Chemistry Technician (4 years, Vocational matura exam),
  • Pharmaceutical Technician (4 years, Vocational matura exam),

There are around 1,000 students in 38 classes and more than 80 teachers and other staff.
 
All study programmes consist of general knowledge subjects, professional theoretical subjects and practical subjects taught in specialised classrooms, hospitals or nursing homes. What is more, we provide a variety of extra-curricular activities for students to choose from.

Classes are held in well-equipped classrooms with modern interactive whiteboards, computers and projectors all of which have internet connectivity. Practical lessons are held in specialised classrooms and laboratories. Students enrolled in the study programmes of nursing and nursing assistant take their practical lessons also in General Hospital Novo mesto and Nursing Home Novo mesto.

All students have on-the-job training from 14 days to 4 months depending on the study programme. They work for their future employees such as General Hospital Novo mesto and Brežice, nursing homes in the Dolenjska, Posavje and Bela Krajina regions, the companies Krka, Akripol and Melamin, spas Krka, pharmacies and beauty salons in the Dolenjska, Posavje and Bela Krajina regions. In this way students acquire knowledge and work experience in real-life working conditions.

The school organises many extracurricular activities from sport and cultural activities to professional field trips such as to Rome for the 4th-year students of nursing, Munich and Salzburg for the 4th-year students of chemistry and pharmacy and Belgrade for the 4th-year students of cosmetics.

In addition, there is a wide range of clubs and activities that students can choose from according to their interests. These include, among others, the school choir and orchestra, reading club, attending theatre performances, foreign languages, journalism and sports. Many of our students take this to the next level by representing the school in sporting and academic competitions at the local, regional, national and international levels.

We work very closely with the local community. Many of our students work as volunteers in hospitals and nursing homes. They also take part in various events at local and regional level.

VISION
Our vision is to establish a school of cooperative learning and teaching which sets the base for continuous professional and personal growth of students and teachers. We encourage students to become more independent and adopt the principle of life-long learning. We believe in the power of knowledge, teamwork and good communication with the teacher having the role of a mentor and adviser. With excellent education we want to prepare the students for challenges and temptations of modern technology society.
