U.S. Nurse moving to Sweden

Posted

Hello everyone :)

This is my 1st post on here. I am getting married in May 2014 and I will be moving to Sweden. I have been a register nurse since 2011(I went through a diploma program) . I wanted to know if anyone on here would know how to being this process. I know learn Swedish is my 1st step, but is there anything like paper work that needs to be done here in that states? I mean any information would be super helpful.

Thanks

Do you plan to work as a nurse in Sweden? If so, you will need a baccalaureate (BSN) degree. The three-year diploma and 2-year associate degree are not eligible for immigration purposes to most countries.

It also depends on how you are moving. Is you husband a Swedish citizen? If not finding a job (after you get a BSN) will prove difficult. As a member of the EU, Sweden hires citizens of the EU first.

Where in Sweden? There are other opportunities available in Sweden or any European country for RN with us credentials. Let me know if I can help.

Good evening; I’m interested in immigration from USA to Sweden with a post-graduate degree in nursing (will have two Masters, Health Systems Administration and Family Nurse Practitioner). Have family in Sweden, grandmother emigrated to the USA. Do you know what the likelihood is? I appreciate any information!
