Work abroad as a nurse

Are you looking to work abroad as a nurse? Great! We’re always looking for people like you. Since we have got a serious lack of good nursing staff in the Netherlands, we can offer you various rewarding jobs in Dutch healthcare. All our jobs are accompanied by a more than competitive salary and enough leisure time to discover the Netherlands in all its glory.

In return, we expect you to do your job in the best way you can. As a nurse, you understand that grasping client’s needs is essential, so you’ll need to be able to communicate in Dutch language. But don’t worry; we’ve got you covered. We have developed an educational program in which all the knowledge and tools are provided to make your career as a Dutch nurse successful.

So do you think you have what it takes to work abroad as a nurse? Then you might want to read all about our Eduployment Program for EU certified nurses, so you can discover all the opportunities you’ll be getting by applying!

Start of the Eduployment Program

The Eduployment Program for EU certified nurses is divided into three main periods. During the first term you’ll follow a free course in your own country, which teaches you all the basics in Dutch language. After that, we’ll invite you over to the Netherlands so you can experience first hand what it means to work abroad as a nurse. To make your first months as comfortable as possible, you’ll receive a good salary and on top of that we’ll help with housing.

This introduction period lasts 4 to 5 months. In addition to knowledge about what it is really like to live and work in the Netherlands, your level of Dutch goes up every day.

After getting acquainted with living and working in the Netherlands you’ll get to decide whether you want to continue to work abroad as a nurse or whether our jobs aren’t your pick. If you continue, you’ll advance into another language training course in which you’ll learn even more about the language and protocols in Dutch healthcare.

Upon completing the advanced course, you’ll be able to pass the obligatory state exam, which is required for obtaining an official Dutch nurse registration. The registration is mandatory for various nursing jobs, so after getting it done, you can really start to work abroad as a nurse in your dream job.

And last, but not least…the third step

When you work as a nurse for Pleyade, we continue to offer you opportunities for further personal growth. We believe that‘s important for you and that‘s why we do it.
