Work in Holland for Spanish nurses
In some countries, healthcare jobs are not there for the taking. However, in the Netherlands exists a lack of certified, professional caretakers. That’s why Pleyade provides the opportunity to work in Holland for Spanish nurses. Our nursing jobs are preceded by the Eduployment Program, an educational procedure in which you’ll be equipped with all the tools and knowledge to make your nursing career a success.
It is initially meant for already certified nurses, but there is also an internship program designed for nursing students with a 6 months Erasmus scholarship. In order to provide the best care and support for our clients and patients, it is crucial to understand their needs. Therefore, both programs start with an introductory course in Dutch language which is given in Spain.

The Eduployment Program: a short summary
Applying for work in Holland for Spanish certified nurses and nursing students requires you to sign up for the Eduployment Program first. It’s easily done through the website. After application, you’ll follow the introductory course in which you’ll learn the most important words and basic phrases of the Dutch language, so you can ultimately communicate with both clients and colleagues.
Introductory period for certified nurses
Next, we invite you to come over to the Netherlands for a paid introductory period. During this 5 month period, you’ll get accustomed to the protocols in Dutch healthcare by performing ‘Activities of Daily Living’ for our clients. Of course, this won’t be for nothing. Besides a competitive salary, we will arrange your housing and you also receive extras and excellent coaching.
Introductory period for nursing students
As a nursing student this introductory period is a 6 month internship, where you can apply for the Erasmus scolarship, see also our special Erasmus program [LINK]. During your internship it is possible to indicate if you want to come back for paid work at Pleyade after graduation. If so, you can after graduation participate also in the second part of the program (the follow-up program) and continue with the other qualified nurses.
The program continues...
Joining the follow- up program, you’ll advance into another course in which facets of the Dutch language and healthcare protocols are further explained. The course prepares you for the obligatory state exam, which is required to pass for applying for a nurse registration. The registration is needed to be able to apply for jobs in healthcare institutions as nursing homes, general hospitals, psychiatric institutes and private clinics.
After being registered, you can take full advantage of all our job positions while continuing to improve your nursing skills through personal development programs and additional training. We’ll provide everything you need for your dream job as a professional caretaker.
