Attend a hospital interview and get selected for an adaptation training, get your qualifications assessed by the German state office of nursing from the concerned state in Germany, and receive the decision letter suggesting for adaptation training.
Receive the offer letter for adaptation training along with other supporting documents from the hospital which has accepted you.
Apply for your visa, arrive in Germany, and follow the steps, the programme and the procedures, and get licensed to practice nursing in Germany.
This option gives more importance for getting your qualifications assessed first by a German state nursing council while you are in your home country, even before learning German language.
To start with, get all your documents translated into German language by a certified translator in Germany, get it legalised and submit your application for initial registration to the state office for nursing practice and regulating, on behalf of you.
It normally takes 45 -60 days but it can take more time than expected, and cannot predict the actual time taken till we hear from the state office. That’s the situation with all the state offices for nursing in Germany.
Hence it’s highly advised to use this time of waiting, to start and keep learning German language.
Once the decision letter is issued and received by us on behalf of you, an adaptation training offer is obtained from a hospital which is interested and ready to offer you a place for the same.
At the same time, our associate language school in Germany will issue an admission offer to teach you German language if required, even from the beginner’s level, A1 Level.
So with all these three documents; decision letter / deficiency letter received from the state office, adaptation training offer received from a hospital, and the admission letter received from the language school and other supporting documents you will start preparing to lodge your visa application at the nearest German consulate.
Here in this programme, since you would have already received a decision letter from the state office in favor, the German school, your first sponsor in Germany will be able to apply for a Government Grant which is available in Germany to support foreign educated nurses and doctors to meet some of the expenses incurred during their efforts during the preparation process.
Therefore you will need to pay only 4000.EUR to the German school for the language course of German up to B2 level, all the required services including communicating with the hospital on behalf of you for an adaptation training place, liasoning with all the government and institutional bodies while you are in the process, and before.
You will get licensed to practice nursing in German hospitals after successful completion of the adaptation training.
