In some countries jobs as a nurse are scarce. However, not in the Netherlands. The Dutch are currently dealing with a shortage of professional caretakers. That is why we, at Pleyade, developed and implemented an educational program which prepares foreign nurses for various positions in Dutch healthcare as best as possible.
Regardless of whether you want to work with elderly clients in nursing homes or provide care and support in general hospitals or private clinics, we’ve got just the right job for you. To ensure a successful nursing career in Holland, you’ll first need to understand the language and healthcare protocols. And that’s where the educational program is for.
The Eduployment Program, as it’s called, provides you with all the knowledge and tools needed to apply for one our your dream jobs as a nurse. Interested? Read more about our program and discover all our opportunities!
The Eduployment Programme Summarised
As an certified nurse you understand the importance of flawless communication with clients and patients. That’s why our Eduployment Program starts with an introductory course in Dutch language, given in your own country. Upon completion, you’ll be invited for a 5-month paid introductory period at Pleyade in the Netherlands.
During this time you’ll get know your future colleagues. You’ll also perform some Acitivities of Daily Living for our clients for which you will be paid accordingly. Also, we’ve arranged everything in terms of housing. Since you won’t work for more than 5 days in a row, there’s plenty of time left to explore the Netherlands. After the paid introductory period, you’ll decide if you want to continue to work at Pleyade and grow into a more responsible role.
The Second Phase
The second period of the program is all about mastering the Dutch language even better. You’ll follow an advanced course until you have the appropriate vocabulary and skills to pass a state examination. Passing the exam is necessary for requesting a Dutch nursing registration that makes you able to apply for jobs as a nurse in all kinds of healthcare institutions.
At Pleyade, we think personal growth is important. So, after you’ve found your ideal position, we continue to offer possibilities to further grow into your profession by specializing in different disciplines of nursing.
