Characteristics of the Department:

The Department has been part of the Faculty of Health Care Studies of the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen since the 2008/2009 academic year. The Nursing programme has long been specializing in preventive care of lifestyle diseases, research on skin diseases and prevention of malignant diseases. In midwifery, the Department focuses on care in the community setting.

Every year, the Department organizes student conferences where students present interesting experiences from their practical training On the occasion of the anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale, the Department is organizing a national conference, "Journey of Learning and Education in Nursing." We expect a similar tradition in student scientific conferences in cooperation with UWB in Pilsen.
