When should I apply for PA school?

Training information

In the near future, training in the higher-level service for health and nursing will be transferred to the technical college. So take the opportunity to train in the upper class at our school - both in Oberwart and in Frauenkirchen!

With a successfully completed three-year training in the high-level service for health and nursing, you take on the overall responsibility for the nursing process in a crisis-proof and future-proof profession. Although the training is demanding, it offers you a wide range of insights into the various competencies and fields of action of this unique profession. Together with your eagerness to learn, our passion and a common motivation, we accompany you hand in hand from the beginning of your training to the successful completion. So take advantage of the opportunity to apply at one of the two locations this year. There are enough apprenticeships available for this year!

Additional information for the application at the Frauenkirchen site (!): A double application is possible there - both for training in high-level health and nursing care (training duration: 3 years) and for nursing assistant (training duration: 2 years). Your application will then be registered for both training tracks, increasing your chances of being accepted into one of both training courses. Please express this wish in your application letter!

Danger (!):
Since this form of training is being offered for the last time, there is no possibility of repeating a year of training if the training goals are not achieved and after all repetition options have been exhausted, as in the following year (2022) only training as a nursing assistant will be offered!
