The Faculty of Health and Social Sciences is one of the eight faculties of the University of South Bohemia in Ceské Budejovice. It has a unique position in the Czech Republic, largely due to its interconnection of health care and social topics. The aim is for graduates to understand and apply a holistic approach that looks at a person as a whole — and thus ensures both, the body and the soul receive support. 

The harmonious combination of these perspectives offers opportunities to train professionals who can perform their profession as a mission. In today’s world, this constitutes a great advantage for the Faculty – people educated in this way will always be needed in the workplace.

The content of the curriculum is set up to familiarise students with all the necessary knowledge and skills needed for the profession of a general nurse. The knowledge and skills obtained by students are in accordance with basic competence criteria that are defined by the European Commission. These competencies include care for children, youth, adults and seniors with acute and chronic health disorders and somatic and psychological difficulties.
