How does it work?

After you passed the introductory course, we’d like you to join us in the Netherlands so you can familiarise yourself with your future colleagues and clients in the nursing homes.

For certified nurses
After completing the language course for beginners, we invite you to come to the Netherlands for a paid introductory period. During these 5 months period, you will get used to the protocols in Dutch healthcare by performing “Activities of daily life” for our clients. Of course, this will not be for nothing.
