    Hello: The Finnish language is beautiful but very difficult with pronunciation grammer and..., any way the profeissonal language will be more difficult. I wish the pilot nurses all the best.

    Adn without being absolutely fluent in it and passing the licensure exam for there, not one will be working there in the category of the RN. As a care-giver only, same thing that all of these so-called agreements have been for.

    I am always very negative on programs like this as one is not sent as a nurse, but as a care-giver and it will be almost impossible to pass the language exam in just 6 months, you need to be at the university level in that short time.

    These programs take advantage of the nurse, and nothing more than that. Your country keeps signing these agreements but none are for actual RNs to go and work in the role of the RN. You have all gone to school for minimum of four years for the BSN, and then are treated like maids. You should not be receptive to this kind of treatment either.

    Your pay is not going to be that of the RN, the cost of living there is outrageous and quite cold in the winter. Any money that you earn is going to be spent on keeping warm. This is what most of you are failing to understand. There are periods of time in the winter when you are not going to see any sunshine either.

    Better question or idea is always to wait and see how many actually get thru programs like this and become licensed there as RNs first, and how many return home before they complete the six months.

    I am very tired of seeing nurses get taken advantage of, and that is what is happening with any of these programs. You are looking at it from your country but not from the outside looking in and seeing what has happened to all of the others that are going thru this type of program now in other countries.

    Best of luck to you, but you always need to go into things with your eyes fully opened to what is actually going to happen, not what is being promised that just does not exist.

    I appreciate your concern for the Nurses here Suzanne, but we must give it the benefit of the doubt. Who knows this might work well for the trial group, learning another language isnt that hard (well if they try hard enough), and the training can also help prepare them for the exam. And they can go on from there, it depends on the person's "diskarte" (?ingeniousness)

    We shouldnt be afraid to jump into the uncertain right? Without a first step how can we move forward.
