Nursing training with focus on pediatrics

Specialise in working with infants, children and adolescents already during apprenticeship

As a prospective nurse, interpersonal interaction on the ward is crucial to the success of our patients’ treatment. Especially when dealing with our youngest patients, it is particularly important to integrate relatives and loved ones into the treatment and care. In this way, we create a familiar environment and promote rapid recovery. We therefore attach great importance to this important component and integrate it into our comprehensive training curriculum.

We focus on your personal development. Our instructors not only provide you with intensive support, but also take into account your previous knowledge and personal development opportunities. To ensure a first-class training program, we deliberately keep your training group small – with a maximum of 25 participants.
