Whichever E.U. country you are applying to or from the process is simple and broadly the same.
1 – You will need to get your diploma in nursing recognised by the country where you want to work. If you have any questions about this process contact us and will try to help you. The following documentation is usually needed for the registration process (for more detailed information go to the destination country’s website of choice):
- Certified copy of valid passport
- Certified copy of birth certificate (recommended: International Birth Certificate)
- Certified copy of criminal record, issued by the competent authority in your home country
- Certified copy of your Nursing Diploma, issued by your school
- Certified copy of a Declaration from your local Nursing Board, stating you are registered and have no disciplinary record (Ordem dos Enfermeiros – PT, Colegio de Enfermeria – ES, Ordre des Infirmiers – FR, etc.)
- Certified translations of all documents not originally issued in the official language of the country
2 – Submit your curriculum vitae (C.V.) in the template format we have provided on our site and complete in word format.
3 – Appropriate language skills will then be assessed by Primary Care Recruitment by way of an initial interview. At this stage we are looking for a B2 level of English, B1 of French, B1/B2 of German or A2 of Dutch under standardised tests. However, if you do not meet this standard we will work with you and provide tips on improvement. We will also direct you towards key medical terms in your respective language.
4 – The candidate’s hopes and aspirations are discussed and advice on the registration process in your preferred jurisdiction will be given. THE SOONER YOU START THE REGISTRATION PROCESS THE SOONER WE CAN MATCH YOU TO AN EMPLOYER.
5 – Your job interview can be conducted in company offices, at a recruitment event or via Skype technology. This will be at the discretion of the employer.
