The CCNURCA Tempus Project has significantly strengthened both human and material technical resources to facilitate competency-based learning, which is of utmost importance in the field of nursing education. As part of these activities, the teaching staff of the Health Care study program of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Zenica attended a series of training sessions aimed at enabling the implementation of new learning methodologies. One of the key activities for the realization of this project was the equipping and opening of the Training Center for the Development of Nursing Clinical Skills, which was equipped with the help of EU funds and the University of Zenica's own funds.
