    if your main goal in going to Norway is to be General Nurse, it will definitely take you 2-3 years of study plus Norwegian language courses to get a license and find a job. If you don't want to study 2-3 years more, then just opt for being a health care worker in Norway - you just need to study their language for a year, you can have an authorization as health care worker anytime you want but for you to get a job you need to learn the language. Authorization takes 6 months to process, you can do it here or in Norway, you don't need any clinical experience but of course it helps I guess... basic requirement is to be a college graduate and must hold PRC license here

    I hope this helps you decide on what to do

    hi everyone!!

    i just wanna ask if you know anyone who could help with accomodation letter?
    im planning to apply as a student in norway to study the language, i have already completed my requirements aside from my accomodation letter as i dont know anyone from norway. i didnt want to go for agency coz they are charging me a lot.
    just the accoomodation letter and i will just find a place when i get to norway.
    pleaseeee helppp!!


    I am also planning to apply for a residence permit visa and this is also a problem of mine. Unfortunately, if you do not know anyone in Norway you will not have an accommodation letter which states that he/she is inviting you to live in their house/apartment for free.

    If you're looking for another way to have information about housing (the requirement) then you can use a lease contract to present it in the embassy. I opted to do this because although I know someone in Norway, I can feel that it will be difficult for her since she is living in a "collective" type of house.

    you can find apartment for rent in this website FINN Eiendom - Bolig til leie
    expect to pay 3 months deposit in any of your choice, I have used this website too as this offers the most choice regarding apartment type, monthly rental and place, unfortunately, none of the ads I contacted had given a feedback yet

    hi i am nurse from Malaysia but they give me license for Helsefagarbeider but do you know how much i have to study to get license to work as sykepleier
    According to SAK, your credentials from your education will be compared to that of Norwegian standard, if your credentials from school fails to meet the Norwegian standard, they will ask you to study 3 more years even if you already have license and working experience from hospitals there in Malaysia, I think it's a new rule as for sykepleier

    Is anyone here aware of the change regarding healthcare worker? They used to give autorisasjon as auxilliary nurse but now they call it healthcare worker. Did anyone already passed their requirements or this?

    Hi Jeffyanne! Yup, I just enrolled myself in a norwegian language school when I got here. It's a "voksenopplringssenter", and most, if not all, kommune (municipality) has one. It's sort of a public school here. Fees are cheaper, but it doesn't mean that it is not expensive (around 15k php for the one I attended). Anyway, you can try enrolling in folkeuniversitetet. Fees are quite expensive, but I think you can enrol yourself online to that. I hope that helps.
