Our recruiting program is one of the most complete programs out there. We are able to coach you from your home country to Germany, from the visa to the final work contract.
If you fit all the requirements for participation, we can already start working on your visa. The process is as following:
Your visa will be the type D - §17a. This visa requires, among others, a work contract. This means that you will sign a contract before coming to Germany and you will know all the terms of employment, such as salary, vacations, working hours, etc.
You must be in Germany 3 months before the start of the course, this is because of visa and bureaucratic processes. During this time, we provide accommodation but there is no other financial support for these 3 months.
The accommodation is a flat shared with 3 or 4 other nurses. Each person stays in a private room, but the kitchen, living room and bathroom are shared.
To receive your licence, you need the level B2 in German. We offer the course from B1 to B2.
Duration: 8 months theory and 6 months practical.
After the language course, you start the working. In average, you will need to work around 6 months as an assistant before receiving your license to work as a specialist nurse.
Before you travel to Germany, we will gather your documents and forward them to a certain governmental office which is responsible for allowing the licenses for nurses. This office will analyze how your education differs from the German educational system and then they decide how many hours you must work as assistant and in which departments. This decision is individual and different for each candidate. However, you will be paid for all the time you work as assistant, regardless of how many months. Your salary will be 1.000,00 Euros per month after taxes.
You will work as assistant in one of our partner hospitals. The hospitals determine in which department you start, who supervises you, your working schedule, etc. We get weekly updates about your progress.
After you pass the period as assistant, you can start working in your 3 years’ contract. This contract will be already set before you travel. If you are going to work in the east side of Germany, your salary will be around 1.500,00 Euros (net income), in the west side of Germany, the salary will be around 1.900,00 Euros (net income).
After 3 months in this contract, i.e. working as a specialist nurse, we can bring your family to join you (husband or wife and children, only).
After 8 years from traveling to Germany, you can apply for the German citizenship.
