More on the educational programme

So the educational programme starts with an introductory course in which you’ll dive into the most important words and expressions. After that, you’ll be able to join a Dutch healthcare facility in the Netherlands for 4 months to get acquainted with your future colleagues and clients.

During this period, you’ll perform some Activities of Daily Living (ADL) for residents at one of the nursing homes of our partners. We arrange your housing and offer you a competitive salary while you still have plenty of time to explore the country and overthink your decision to work abroad as a nurse in the Dutch healthcare organization.
