There is a great shortage of qualified nurses in The Netherlands. We want to help you to solve this problem in a sustainable manner. We can provide your healthcare organization with qualified (BIG registered) nurses and assistent-nurses (verzorgende IG).  We recruit many nurses abroad The Netherlands. Some come from EU countries, some come from countries outside the EU like Servia, the USA or Libanon. Our nurses have achieved at least the B1 Dutch level. We have organized intensive Dutch language courses. When they come from outside the EU we help them praparing for the AKV exam and BI exam, in order to obtain BIG registration.


We can provide nurses and assistant nurses for the elderly care, nurses for OB/GYN,  ICU, CCU, ER or Operation Room nurses.


Application proces

During the process of learning the Dutch language we also help the nurses to prepair for working in the Dutch culture, with Dutch protocols and how to uses specific Dutch medical terminology.

This whole process takes about 10 months.

First we ensure that their nursing education is acknowleged by the Dutch Governement (IDW/Nuffic).

During that process (when they have already achieved the A2 level) we organize meetings between the candidates and healthcare organizations. In this way you can “reserve” a candidate to came and work with your organzation when they have finished their Language course and they can obtain the BIG registration.

Personalized Care for our nurses

 The Jobcoaches also keep close contact with you as employers to ensure the successful integration of our nurses into your workforce. Euronize Healthcare helps the nurses to find a house or appartment close the the working location. Euronize Healthcare also provides jobcoaches during the first 6 months when these foreign nurses start to work in The Netherlands. The jobcoaches help them to get used to the specific Dutch working environment.

Secondment agreement

The nurses are officially employed by Euronize Healthcare and they are placed at your Healthcare organization. In this way there is no risk according to sickleave or when you are not satisfied by the quality of work.
