Hello! I have chronic Hepa B and wishing to work abroad as a nurse. I applied for a scholarship  to study German language and fortunately got accepted and able to study German for a year. Took the pflge exam last month and currently waiting for the results. The school/agency is now requesting me to do medical exams. I’m afraid what will happen next if they’ll know my condition. If they still continue to process my documents.

Hi, If you don't mind me asking,How was your application status? We have the same case, I am planning to study german language but hesitant to do so because of my HBV status.

Hi. I have not submitted my medical yet as I am still waiting for an employer from my current agency. Still, they don't know anything about my condition.

I'm also considering to transfer  (agency), since my current agency doesn't have an employer for me yet, it's been almost 2 months since I passed the language test.

Will update you once I am done with my medical. 🙂 

Praying that they still hire me...

Hi, if you have very low viral load I don't think it is a problem. I know someone who has a very low viral load but shes in uk right now. She is also a nurse and works a a stroke rehab nurse. 

Tqs for your response. Is there any separate  agencies for sponsor !!  Could you tell me the process
