I am sorry if this has already been discussed; there are so many threads on nursing but I did a search and did not find anything on nursing assistants.
I have a BScN from Canada, but due to the long process of getting my credentials recognized and not being that great at German I thought it would make sense to get another health related job while I focus on getting as good at German as possible.
From my understanding you need B1 German to work as a Nursing Aide/Assistant. I have done searches on hospital websites and I do not see positions for them though... I have looked at Pflegehelfer and Pflegeassistent but the only hits I get under nursing are for Pflegefachfrau/Pflegefachmann which I need to degree recognition for.
Does anyone have experience working in these positions and could give me some insight on where to apply? I am thinking some long term care homes would be a good idea as a start.
Merci viel mal!
P.S. I am looking in Kanton Bern
