Nursing and care professionals from abroad

If you wish to recruit a nurse from abroad, you must first find out exactly which country you want to recruit from. Unlike in Germany, the nursing profession requires academic training in many countries – the recognition of professions plays an important role here.

You can find information on the options for admitting nurses to the German labour market on the website of the Federal Employment Agency.

In the framework of the Triple Win project, the International and Specialised Services, cooperating with the German Agency for International Cooperation, finds work placements for nursing and care workers from the partner countries of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Tunisia and the Philippines in nursing or geriatric institutions in Germany. Both the employers and employees are guided throughout the entire migration process. You can find more information on the Triple Win website.

Are you from a recruitment agency or would you like to use the services of a private recruitment agency as an employer? Please take note of information from the Federal Employment Agency on the placement of healthcare personnel from abroad.
