Re: Nursing Diploma recognition by Red Cross

3 months is only for getting your qualification converted to a Swiss equivalent. It does not include the time you need to acquire one of the Swiss national languages (german, french or italian). Your application for Swiss recognition won't be granted until you have the necessary language skills.

My wife went through this though she was already fluent in German having taken A levels in German and French so it took 3 months after proving that she had the required language skills.

Hello All

I wonder if there is any nurse in the forum and would like to share their experience of getting their Nursing Diploma recognize here.It seem to be a long process in spite of it should take only 3 month because you need to pass a german exam level B2 (new since last year) and then...
may be you need also to attend a Red cross training such as pratical training(in hospital for 6 month) and a course.
Any feedback about it will be really helpful?
Thank you in advance.
