Non-EU Student Program for Norway

Working together with nurses from Poland and the EU for more than 9 years we have helped nurses, as well as their families, to develop in Norway. Giving both them and their families an outstanding opportunity for personal and professional development. We pride ourselves in caring for the development of your career in Norway, guiding them every step of the way from the first contact with us, adjusting to a new lifestyle, finding accommodation, to fitting into your new working environment.

We have from 2020 also widened our offer to include nursing students from non-EU countries that are studying nursing in Poland. We are offering the same working conditions to nurses that have completed their bachelor’s degree in Poland as we do to EU citizens.  This also includes the option of summer jobs in Norway after completing your 4th /5th semester and learning Norwegian to the level of minimum A2.

Our dedicated recruiters will follow you from registration, recruitment to your interview with your future employer, and employment.
