The program in short
The program is meant for EU-resident already having a EU-nursing degree. However, we do offer Erasmus internships for EU-students as well. Anyway, it all starts with a introductory course in which you’ll get to know the basics of the Dutch language. The course is given in your own home country and is already paid for. You’ll only have to purchase the required study app.
Upon completing the beginner’s course, you’ll be invited to the Netherlands so you can get acquainted with the Dutch culture and any future co-workers. For 5-6 months you’ll learn what it’s like work as a healthcare professional in the Netherlands. After this introduction, you’ll decide if our nursing jobs near Amsterdam and Arnhem fit you like a glove or they’re not what you expected.
The program continues...
If you want to continue your training as a Dutch nurse, you’ll sign a contract and you’ll be rolled in another language course in which you’ll master the Dutch language even more. Right until you have reached the level you need to apply for an obligated nurse-registration. After that, your nursing career in the Netherlands really begins since you can apply for all sorts of caretaking jobs which Pleyade has to offer.
