    Hello, I am in the same boat as the other girl who replied however I am currently working in Canada. My boyfriend is also from sweden moving back and wanting me to move as well. I will have 1 year experience of nursing in pediatrics by moving time. Im also not sure what my options are for nursing in sweden. I do not speak swedish however I would be willing to take a 6 month course on the language to hopefully become fluent. Not sure how difficult this may be. Do you need a certain amount of years of experience before considering moving..?

    Hi everyone,

    I am a registered nurse from England and have been trying to seek ways of nursing in Sweden, I work mainly in theatres (Operating Rooms). I am not fully fluent in Swedish, however I have been learning for quite some time.

    I have been looking to move to Mellerud for quite sometime, and perhaps work in a neighbouring hospital there.

    Can you perhaps tell me what it is that I must do in order for my searching and finding a job successful in Sweden please? Should I apply to hospitals to see if there any vacancies? Should I write my l enquiries in Swedish? Will I be expected to speak Swedish at an interview stage?

    Thank you so much for your time.

    Kindest Regards...

    Thank you so much that is a great help.

    That was the next question I was going to ask was 'How do I get a license'? As a local hospital not far from Torgrinsbyn wish for me to fill in an application, I need a better understanding of the Swedish language...which I am learning at the moment. And they asked me to obtain a license.

    Thank you Starqueen!
