Faculty of Social Sciences and Health Care was founded as the fourth faculty of the Constantine the Philosopher University in Nitra (CPU) in 2001. It included the workplaces which focused on the issues of social sciences at the CPU. Healthcare study programmes started to develop at the Faculty in 2002, which included cooperation with the Faculty Hospital Nitra which is a key practical training facility for students of the Faculty.
Development of helping professions via education and research activities is the basic role of the Faculty. The Faculty provides university education in: Psychology; Social Work; Social Services and Counselling; Nursing; and Urgent Health Care. All the fields focus on the persons. The persons in the broadest possible sense: the persons as individualities; the persons in their interpersonal relationships; the persons in their social networks; and the persons in social contexts. Specific attention is paid to the persons with problems; the persons requiring care by professionals in healthcare, psychological and social scopes. The persons who would suffer, who would not have their physical, mental and social needs saturated, or would occur in social exclusion without professional interventions. Our goal is to prepare competent professionals for practice in helping professions. People who are competent in their professions, who are prepared both professionally and humanly to work with other people, help them in their progress, treat their “wounds” (physical, mental and social), lead and develop them.
