Re: Info for nurses looking to work in switzerland.

Hi all,

Just thought I would jump in here. I have a BSN from the USA and worked as an oncology RN in New Orleans. I live in Geneva, and have just passed the B2 French exam and submitted my application in December to the Red Cross to recognize my nursing license here.

Reading your posts about an internship and a 5000 CHF adaptation course in addition to 1000 CHF to the Red Cross is making me uneasy. Do ALL recognized nurses have to take this course, or is it for certain people with/without certain qualifications?

Hi, I am not sure 100% but i think it depends because nurses recruited from Quebec did not have to pay for any course. My friend only paid for visa and, maybe for recognition, but i am not sure again as fees might have been partially covered by the agency. However, recruitment is halted for now due to changes in admission requirements for foreign nurses to Switzerland so best would clarify with RC.
