Re: Info for nurses looking to work in switzerland.

Hi feomol,

You need to contact each hospital respectively & the Red Cross Swiss.

I did return to work 2 years ago but have since left my post in April this year due to ongoing battles with the Red Cross Suisse in order to validate my Child Nursing degree. The swiss do not train within different sectors as a nurse like the UK therefore they found it very confusing that my degree only enables me to work as a registered child nurse & provide care to children from Newborn until 16 years of age.

After 2 years and considerable cost I was not granted the 'Reconaissance de votre titre professionnel' due to my language qualifications not being degree standard/B2 although I could complete my job and work within a neonatal Intensive Care Unit very competently.

You need to provide degree/diploma certificates of the language you shall work in up to degree standard whether that be french, german or italian depending on where you shall work within Switzerland. The website outlines all of the required qualifications and paperwork which needs to be provided in order to work as a nurse in Switzerland.

Good luck
