    I got lazy to do a backread because of the lenght of the page on the thread but ill just answer the basic questions here. let me clear all the questions re: autorisasjon som hjelpepleier and helsefagarbeider. anyone who has an autorisasjon som hjelpepleier could notice that the expiration is after 2 or 3 years and you need to renew the autorisasjon while the ones with autorisasjon som helsefagarbeider will expire during their retirement age of 65 as calculated by safh. my friends who have autorisasjon som hjelpepleier applied for the helsefagarbeider bec of its expiration. With regards to type of work, the item helsefagarbeider is higher than a hjelpepleier and is paid higher than a hjelpepleier. Anybody from norway or from EU could work as hjelpepleier even without any education in medical course but they can not work as helsefagarbeider unless they undergo a 2yr helsefagarbeider study. A helsefagarbeider could administer medicines but not the hjelpepleier.Case is, a hjelpepleier can not apply for the item as helsefagarbeider but the helsefagarbeider can apply for a hjelpepleier item.

    one thing more.re: norwegian schools sa philippines are not acknowledged by the norwegian govt regardless of how good they are or how much youve learned from them.still you need to prove you are good by passing the norwegian language exam3. take it as your advantage in learning the language but i guess these schools charge you so much and is really a pain in the pocket.and beware to these schools without business operation permits they might collect your money and just might just leave you without you knowing it.still be cautious especially they know that this is an easy money.

    I'm planning to work in Norway. I'm an RN and was wondering if it's possible to work there without any hospital experience? what position in the health care sector should I apply?

    I cant say that it is easy for you to find a job here even if you know someone here because of many factors(pls refer to my first post on the previois page). I can say that it is an andvantage to you because you wont be spending much for your house rent. Re: experience, they dont really require hospital experience but still and I it is better if you have an experience there in the Phils. It is more likely that the employers will hire you if you have an experience than the ones without any, unless that person is a newly grad cum laude or an educator.

    You can check finn.no lists of apartments for rent. They dont allow room sharing here unlike in the phils that we have bedspace or room for rents. Every single room is only alloted for a single person or a couple and everything has an insurance here. You are also obliged to register to the folkeregister after you have already found a place to stay.if someone offered you room sharing then that is illegal. Expect also to pay atleast 3,500kroner for the monthly pay and a 3month deposit.and usually you have a 6mo-3yr rent contract.
