My name is Patricija Fučko and I am a student at the Secondary School for Healthcare in Nova Gorica. I would like to present my experience with the practical training that I completed at CIRIUS in Vipava.
In Slovenian, CIRIUS stands for Centre for Education and Rehabilitation of Physically Handicapped Children and Adolescents, a place where children and youth with special needs receive education and training. I chose this institution because I really enjoy working with children.
There I worked as a nurse. As soon as I arrived, I felt the warmth and friendliness of both the children and the staff. And when I started working,
I immediately knew I was doing the right thing. It is such a wonderful feeling when the children and youth welcome you with a smile, a kind word and positive energy that radiates from them. I gained a lot of experience that will serve me well in my life.
During my time there, I got to see a different view of life, to see a part of the lives of happy and lively children who are this way regardless of their medical condition.
