Nursing study in Europe

Posted

Hi I heard that if we study two years of masters in nursing in Europe we can work in any country by using schengan visa as soon as we finished the course. Can we work any of these 26 countries without registration?? And for the bsc nurses like me from India they says no need of IELTS to study in Europe is this information is Correct? If I can work with schengan visa how many years I can work???? If anyone knows about it please let me know thanks

Interesting question, and I'll be interested in the answer! You would not be able to work in the United States....but Europe? Someone here will know :)

Well IELTS would be useless if you wanted to work in most of Europe that does not have English as its primary language (France, Germany, Italy, etc). So that sounds like a random extrapolation. UK mandates IELTS for immigration & visa for all entrants even if from an English speaking country.

UK does not participate. And nearly every country listed does not have English as their primary language.

It does not appear this visa applies to nurses particularly. Not all countries offer nursing degrees (some are diploma only) nor do they offer masters degrees.

You would need to demonstrate linguistic proficiency in the country you wish to work whether Polish, Czech, German, French, Norwegian, etc.

I think you are oversimplifying. Which country? Are you fluent in the language and medical terminology of the language? Length of visa depends on work contract obtained and qualifying by the country standards and proving language competency.

It seems the length varies from 90 days to several years if you obtain an approved work contract for the longer duration. It appears simply studying in the country does not automatically qualify you. What country do you wish to study, live & work in? Not all European countries even recognize BS or MS level nursing. Germany, Bulgaria, Belgium and Romania are countries that do not have MS as a level of education. Romania refers to nursing nurses as medical assistants.
