    [QUOTE=NorwegianNurse;4503802]We have two different types of nurses in Norway. Through high school (two years in school, two years as an apprentice), you can be a what we call a help nurse. To work as a nurse, you need a bachelor in nursing. There are a few jobs as help nurses in hospitals, but it's mostly nurses who work at hospital now. But in nursing homes, they need both a lot of help nurses and nurses. In more rural places (and in the north), they need a lot of nurses too, and some work places you get a lot of perks.

    If you are from a country outside the EU, you need to fill in an application form to get the authorization and licence to work as a nurse/help nurse. If you want to work as a nurse, you need higher education and they have to compare your education with the Norwegian education.

    The agency is called The State's Office of Authorization for Health Personnel (SAFH).

    Good luck

    i also attended a consultancy firm regarding residence permit visa to learn the language.
    And i must say the amount they were asking for their "consultancy" was too much.
    I was planning to go the same path, but i had no relatives in norway.
    When i consulted my relatives in other eu nations, they said agencies and consultancy should not be trusted, and encouraged me to make an online application instead.

    My only problem was the accommodation since i was applying on my own and not in a group. If someone here is going to push through with online application, message me, maybe we can share accommodation. I'm definitely pushing through with my application online.

    hi i also want to apply with this program and thats also my problem .i think we need to recruit lot of people who are interested with this program and lets form a group and help each other what do you think

    Does everyone here only applied for jobseeker visa in norway? Because I heard that applying for a student visa would be much easier. I already passed my papers to SAFH but I am considering the possibility of applying for a student visa.

    Hi guys! I have a question . Do I still need to process papers for SAFH even if the visa I'm planning to apply is residence permit for skilled worker to learn Norwegian?. Then, maybe while studying in Norway, I'll get to fix my papers for the authorization? Is this possible? Im just wondering. Hope to hear from you guys. Thank you so much.

    and @Jacob Abraham: I'm not so sure myself, hehehe. I suggest you backread and try to visit this site, English " Hope this one helps

    goodluck everyone
