    Hi Rnurse22!

    I also dont know the process yet. But the one I know is you should get an authorization from SAFH(ministry of norwegian health) so you can work to norway. Do you know anyone who lives in Norway?

    Hei igjen.

    Thanks so much. I will, of course, try to update every now and then if I know the answers. Let's help fellow nurses.

    Kae87 - Stanvanger is close to Oslo however there are more opportunities in Oslo I think since it's larger but yes ramoj_13 (it's yahoo) if you can suggest or refer someone. Thanks a lot. What stage are you at in the processing btw?

    Good luck RNurse22. Have patience and you'll get it for sure.

    Thanks again!

    Thank God I found this site. I am an RN in the Philippines and also applying as a nurse in Norway. My relative, who presently resides in Oslo (who's not a nurse) and referred me this www.safh.no site to read and fill out the forms. I send all the required documents and applied as a General Nurse. I received my Giro last month and paid 1,120 Kroner in the bank. But since almost all the banks don't have this currency(NOK), I just converted it and paid it in dollars. Then I found this site. I noticed that instead of applying as a general nurse, most of you have chose the auxiliary nurse for its the easiest way to get the authorization. Can I still change my application form from general to auxiliary? Do I still have to send back my invoice to SAFH by mail? I hope someone can help me on this. Thank you and God bless.

    hi curious-rn,

    i guess there is no need for you to change your application to auxiliary nurse since safh is are not made to hire employees but sort of like filtering nurses. based on what i have known, that safh only is granting authorization and we still need to go through another exam to become a registered nurse in norway. basically your employer will just look at your safh response and it is still there decision where they want to assign you but for us new nurses we are going to work in a geriatric facility since we are still learning the language. which is kinda find with me as a first step in going there.

    by the way when did you pass your safh documents. they receive my documents last october 27 as i send it through fedex. i was wondering how they will reply. is it through snail mail or an email or a text or a call?

    Curious RN,

    your general nurse is fine no need for you to change it to auxiliary nurse application. based on what i have known if your aunt is above wager or own a property in Norway she might have sponsor you. maybe ask her to inquire on an embassy in there. or the process. and the fact that you receive a giro is a nice sign that you are qualified to work as a general nurse in that country. good luck to you.

    ill be going there via job seeker visa and one of my family friend will help me in the process it sort of like sponsorship.

    Thanks very much. I send my docs last Sept and received the giro a month after. they will send the "Fakturan" or giro by snail mail.

    do you have an employer or a career broker for Norway? and what region you belong?

    Hello. When you got your giro, does it have any attachment stating that what you are paying for is the processing of your application as a general nurse?If it does then that's okay however, it will take time. If in case you were denied for general nurse post then you will start the process again (hopefully not) if you want a helsefagarbeider authorisasjon.

    For others who have relatives in Norway, try asking them to pay for your giro for a quicker processing.

    Try calling the number stated in the giro and ask if you can change your application at this point.

    My friend who is working in oslo initially applied for a general nurse after 4 months he was denied, then he reapplied for hjelpeplier post--approved. It took him 10 months total but this is a case to case basis. The best that you can do now is to call safh. Good Luck!

    Anyone who wants to share a room with me?I will apply for the visa in January 2012.
