The healthcare system in Croatia is made up of more than 30,000 nurses with more than 7000 of them having completed a college or university professional qualification.

Becoming a nurse in Croatia

If you are interested in becoming a nurse in Croatia you will first need to complete a nursing education, which consists of secondary level vocational education, in addition to two cycles of university-level education – the Baccalaureate and the Diploma cycle.

The Croatian government and Croatian Ministry of Health emphasize that a nurse’s education should be in tune with the requirements of specific healthcare institutions. In addition, nursing care should be based on the modern standards of nursing practice, along with clearly defined responsibilities.  

Qualified nurses

As a qualified nurse you will be responsible for applying your best professional knowledge of specific circumstances, whilst respecting the patient’s rights and needs. You will also be required to apply correct ethical and professional standards at all times.

All nurses are also responsible for holding confidential information pertaining to the patient’s records.

Throughout the course of a nurse’s career, continued learning and education is required to ensure an up-to-date knowledge and understanding of the latest achievements and practices within the nursing field.

During the course of a nurse’s career, he or she may be required to undertake additional nursing training, in the case where scope and complexity of practice require supplementary qualifications. This may include specializations in specific areas of nursing care, in order to improve the quality and effectiveness of the individual nurse in practice.
