Working places for nurses - The Eduployment Program

Are you looking for working places for nurses? At Pleyade, a healthcare group in the Netherlands, we offer nursing jobs for foreign caretakers since there is a shortage of good nursing staff here. But of course, you won’t be coming to Holland for nothing. We understand.

That’s why we try to make your time at Pleyade as comfortable as possible by paying a competitive salary and provide you with all the help you need to make your career in a nursing home, hospital or other healthcare institution a success. However, to claim such a job you’ll first have to complete our educational program.

The Eduployment Program, as it’s called, prepares you for succeeding in all kinds of working places for nurses in the Netherlands. Interested? Read more about our program and discover all our opportunities!

The Eduployment Program in brief

For EU-nurses, the program starts with an introductory language course in which you’ll learn how to understand and express yourself in basic Dutch. After completing the beginner’s course, we invite you to come over to the Netherlands for an internship of approximately 3 months. During this period you’ll get accustomed with Dutch healthcare guidelines, our clients and your future colleagues while having the time to figure out whether working at Pleyade is the right fit for you.

When it is, you’ll sign a commitment and continue to work on you language skills while learning more about our healthcare idiom and protocols. You’ll do so until you have reached the required level for applying for the obligated nurse registration, which can be requested after passing a state examination. Don’t worry, we’ll prepare you in the best way we can. After obtaining such registration, your nursing career can really begin.

Continuous development

But it doesn’t end there. At Pleyade, we’ll continue to offer you the possibility to grow into your role as a nurse with full responsibility. Personal growth is important for us. That’s why we also offer various training courses which you can follow to further specialize yourself in multiple disciplines, so you ultimately end up in a wide range of working places for nurses like general and psychiatric hospitals or private clinics.
