ZIGG: Healthcare promotion

About 175 employers from central Switzerland active in the fields of urgent care, long-term care and out-patient care (Spitex) united in 2003 under the umbrella of “ZIGG” (Zentralschweizer Interessen­gemeinschaft Gesundheitsberufe), the healthcare professional association of central Switzerland. ZIGG aims at promoting all healthcare professions and coordinating education. Since 2010, ZIGG has been providing high-level education for 900 three-year-apprenticeship healthcare students and 400 nursing students in its own new educational centre in Alpnach. The trainees from the two-year-apprenticeship in health and social care “Gesundheit und Soziales” are also being integrated at this location. Educational possibilities with a practical orientation are launched in coordination with partners in order to satisfy the present and future personnel requirements of the establishments.
