Certificate courses in international nursing
Qualification for international nurses: get started in Germany with IISC e.V.

Preparation course for the oral and practical knowledge examination according to the Nursing Professions Act (PflBG) and Nursing Act (KrPflG).

With our innovative course concept, we lead international nursing staff to professional qualification in Germany.

In a total of five months, participants in our approved programme receive instruction in medical theory and language skills.

The IISC e.V. course for international nurses concludes with a knowledge examination consisting of an oral-theoretical part and a practical part.

The course is AZAV certified and can therefore be financed by an education voucher (Bildungsgutschein) – we will be happy to help you with the application!

Intensive courses in international nursing in Germany: convenient study schedule

Our programme is coordinated in the way that the participants can attend classes for a period of two weeks every month and work regularly for their employer for a remaining period of two weeks.

In this way, theoretical knowledge can be ideally combined with practical work in the care facility or hospital.

It also makes it easier to plan the employees’ schedules.

International nursing: the purpose of the online course

The curriculum was developed together with experienced teachers and directly links to, expands and deepens the knowledge acquired in the country of origin.

It is also our aim that our course identifies and highlights the culture-specific differences in nursing training. Last but not least, we can realize this because of the special cultural sensitivity of our teachers.
