Nurse jobs in private hospitals

In some countries finding jobs in healthcare is hard. Finding nurse jobs in private hospitals might be even harder. However, in the Netherlands there is a shortage of healthcare staff in both general hospitals and private clinics. At Pleyade we try to fill that gap by selecting and training certified nurses and nursing students from in the EU.

We’ve developed educational programs that will prepare you for a flourishing nursing career with good conditions and a competitive salary. With language training and real experiences in Dutch healthcare you get all the tools you need to do what you love: caring for those who need it most. Whether that is in a nursing home or in one of our nurse jobs in private hospitals.

We’ve got two kinds of programs: one for EU certified nurses and one for EU nursing students. Click whatever button is relevant for you and discover the full contents of each program or read on and check out our programs in a nutshell.

In summary

All our vacancies, and especially nurse jobs in private hospitals, require you to provide the best care possible. That’s only possible if you understand a client’s needs, so that is why we need you to be able to communicate in Dutch language. Therefore both the programs for EU certified nurses and EU nursing students start with an introductory language course.

Given that there are enough applicants, this course can be followed in your own home country and is free of charge, besides the mandatory study app (€25). If there aren’t enough participants, following the course elsewhere can be discussed. Anyway, the introductory course will teach you the most basic and important words and phrases in Dutch healthcare.

After completing the introductory course, we invite you over to the Netherlands to experience first hand what’s it like to work at Pleyade. This step is different for students and certified nurses:

Erasmus students

Nursing students follow our so-called Erasmus+ Internship program. In this program you’ll be performing activities of daily living for our clients for about 6 months. Free housing is arranged and you’ll also get a scholarship which you can use to have some fun in your spare time.

Certified nurses

Certified nurses first follow a more intensive, full-time introductory language course before coming over to the Netherlands for a paid introduction period of approximately 5 months. During this time you’ll benefit from subsidized housing and we will already pay you a competitive salary with extra payments for working irregular hours or more than 36 hours a week.

Continue or stop?

After 2 to 3 months in their internship, EU nursing students will have to decide whether they want to continue the program of quit. When you want to continue you can apply for the commitment program which grants you a lot of extras. Already EU certified nurses have previously signed up for the commitment program and cannot stop beforehand.

Continuing also means you’ll roll into a more advanced class in which you will learn about with the Dutch language and our healthcare protocols even more. Right until you know everything you need to pass the state exam and apply for one of our nurse jobs in private hospitals.
