Working as a nurse in German speaking Switzerland

Hi all

I am learning German A2 at the moment- plan
to be at B2 in 2 to 2.5 years. I have two young kids so this is more realistic.

I am applying to Swiss RedCross to have my qualifications recognised.
I was invited to submit my notarised diplomas etc I have a year to do same i.e. Oct this year. Then two years to get B2 German to allow me to apply for jobs etc.

Has anyone being through this process including learning German B2 and got a job as a nurse.

How was it? How is working in Switzerland ? The Swiss RedCross want my application to be for a pflegefachfrau! Is that a Registered Nurse!
I am a psychiatric nurse/ mental health nurse from EU English speaking world!

Re: Working as a nurse in German speaking Switzerland

This is our longest thread on nursing in Switzerland. Maybe there's a post in there from someone who successfully had his/her qualifications recognized, reached the proper level of language proficiency, and started work? Good luck, it sounds like you're on the right path.

Info for nurses looking to work in switzerland.

Yes, this is right for an EU nurse.
For anyone from outside of the EU/EFTA, please note that your language recognition at Level B2 is a non-negotiable prerequisite to applying for recognition.

https://www.redcross.ch/de/srk-diens...te-schritt-zur

Wichtig:
Bürgerinnen und Bürger aus einem EU/EFTA-Mitgliedstaat können den Nachweis über die Sprachkenntnisse im Verlauf des Anerkennungsverfahrens erbringen.
Bürgerinnen und Bürger eines Drittstaates müssen den Sprachnachweis (Niveau B2) noch vor dem eigentlichen Anerkennungsverfahren, auf Stufe Vorprüfung, erbringen. Solange ein solcher Sprachnachweis fehlt, kann auf das Gesuch nicht eingetreten werden.

Important:
Lors de la procédure de reconnaissance, les citoyen-nes d’un Etat membre de l’UE/AELE peuvent apporter la preuve qu’ils disposent des connaissances linguistiques requises.
Les citoyen-nes d’un Etat tiers doivent apporter la preuve de connaissances linguistiques (au niveau B2) avant le début de la procédure de reconnaissance proprement dite, soit au moment de l’examen préalable de la demande. En l’absence d’une telle preuve, aucune suite ne peut être donnée à la demande.

Importante:
I cittadini di uno Stato membro della CE/EFTA possono inoltrare il certificato linguistico nel corso della procedura di riconoscimento.
I cittadini di uno Stato terzo devono fornire un certificato linguistico (di livello B2) allo stadio della valutazione preliminare e quindi prima dell'avvio della procedura di riconoscimento. In assenza di tale certificato non è possibile avviare l'esame della domanda.
