Your Journey to Germany. One step at a time.

CWC breaks down your journey into clear steps and brings transparency to the process. We start by making sure you are a great fit for our program and then guide you through official document collection, language enrollment and language scholarship application (for those that apply). You are never alone during this process - we are here to help!

Employer matching and interview process

Employer matching and interview process

Once all important documents have been submitted and you have studied German at one of our partner language schools up to level A2, you will be matched with several employers that meet your personal specifications. You apply to jobs that you like and the Employer will schedule an interview if there is a good fit. It’s that easy!

Qualification recognition process

Qualification recognition process

After you have secured your new job, we process your qualification recognition and obtain your work authorization. Once in Germany we provide the training required to become a recognized Registered Nurse. All for free.

Language certification and departure

Language certification and departure

Depending on your Employer, you will require either B1 or B2 level certification before your departure. Our Language Team is ready to make sure you have the skills and resources to pass. Our Candidate Support Team will prepare your work visa and organize travel to Germany and pick-up from the airport.

Arrival in Germany and integration

Arrival in Germany and integration

You’ve made it to Germany! Expect to be welcomed by our team and your employer while we assist with arrival logistics and integration. Candidates will then begin work as a nursing assistant while studying for their QR 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.

The minimum requirement to start your program in Germany is a B1 exam certificate from either Goethe, TELC or ÖSD. However, in order to become a registered nurse as quickly as possible, it is crucial that you start studying B2 in your home country, prior to arriving in Germany. Learning a language is unique to each person and exact timelines are therefore difficult to predict. We assume that you could 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, you will move on to the B2 course which should take another 4-6 months. Overall, your timeline depends on your motivation and dedication to your studies.

POES is a certificate of completion of the Pre-Employment Orientation Seminar that is required by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration for Filipinos before working abroad.

POEA E registration is an online registration system for Filipino Applicants aspiring to work overseas.

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!
