What can you expect from us?
Before you can start working in the Netherlands as a nurse, it is crucial that you speak and understand Dutch sufficiently. Therefore, Spijtenburg has made arrangements with a language school that can help you reach the necessary levels.
You will start your training with the first course that will bring you from level 0 to A1 (basic understanding and speach). This will take 4.5 weeks. Upon completion, you will enter into the second course that will bring you to level A2, which will also take 4.5 weeks.
After finishing this second course (A2), you will be able to work as a nursing assistant.
To start working as a nurse you will need a B1 level. In order to obtain this level, you can participate in a language course next to your job as an assistant nurse. Spijtenburg will provide you with the last two of these courses (A2+ and B1).
