Your Path to Germany. Step by Step.

CWC simplifies your journey with clear steps and transparent processes. We begin by ensuring you are an excellent fit for our program, then guide you through collecting official documents, enrolling in language courses, and applying for language scholarships (where applicable). You're never alone in this process - we’re here to support you every step of the way!

Employer matching and interview process

Employer matching and interview process

Once your important documents are submitted and you’ve studied German up to level A2, we match you with employers that fit your personal preferences. You can apply to the jobs you like, and if there's a good fit, the employer will schedule an interview. It’s that straightforward!

Qualification recognition process

Qualification recognition process

After securing your new job, we handle your qualification recognition and work authorization. Once in Germany, we provide the necessary training to become a recognized Registered Nurse. All at no cost to you.

Language certification and departure

Language certification and departure

Depending on your employer, you'll need either B1 or B2 level certification before departure. Our Language Team ensures you have the skills and resources to pass. Our Candidate Support Team will prepare your work visa, organize travel to Germany, and arrange airport pickup.

Arrival in Germany and integration

Arrival in Germany and integration

Welcome to Germany! Our team and your employer will assist with arrival logistics and integration. You’ll start working as a nursing assistant while studying for your qualification recognition and final language exam, all while earning a salary.

What are the requirements to apply?

A bachelor's degree in nursing from a 3 or 4-year university program.

To start your program in Germany, you need a B1 exam certificate from Goethe, TELC, or ÖSD. However, to become a registered nurse as quickly as possible, it’s essential to begin studying for B2 in your home country before arriving in Germany. Language learning varies for each individual, so timelines can differ. Generally, you can be ready for your B1 exam within 12 months if you study at an accredited language school with exam preparation. If your employer requires B2 certification prior to departure, you will proceed to the B2 course, which typically takes an additional 4-6 months. Your overall timeline will depend on your motivation and dedication to your studies.

Your most frequent questions answered

Apart from being a licensed Registered Nurse in your country, committing to passing your language exams and submitting all required documentation, we expect you to: 1) fully commit to passing your B2 and Qualification Recognition exams upon arriving in Germany and 2) staying at your employer for at minimum of 2 years after receiving your Registered Nurse recognition.

During the qualification recognition course period and until you pass the qualification exam and receive your Registered Nurse Certificate (Urkunde), you work as a Nurse Assistant. After receiving the RN Certificate, you will be able to change your visa type and officially work as a RN with a new contract. Most foreign nurses are allowed to work as a Nurse Assistant for a specific period of time upon arriving in Germany, while they prepare to become a fully Registered Nurse. There are two crucial components to becoming a Registered Nurse in Germany: B2 exam and “Kenntnisprüfung”, which is a nursing skills exam. Germany does not have a shortage of Nurse Assistants. Therefore, it is a priority for CWC to help you become a Registered Nurse upon arriving in Germany in order for you to remain in your new country long term.

Once you become a Registered Nurse in Germany, you will be able to stay in the country initially on a work visa. After 5 years you can apply and stay in Germany on a permanent resident basis. You can make long-term professional and personal plans in Germany!
