CareLend, where dreams come true

Adaptation course
for foreign
Nursing staff

Recognition procedure
through an adaptation course from CareLend GmbH

Depending on the federal state, foreign nurses have to pass certain exams in order to obtain their professional permit or approval to work as a nurse. In order to be able to pass these exams, very good preparation is required – linguistically and technically!

Adaptation measure / Adaptation course
According to § 66a Paragraph 1 of the Act on Nursing Professions (PfIBG) of July 17, 2017 (BGBI. I p. 2581) in the currently valid version, according to § 2 of the Act on Professions in Nursing (Nursing Act – KrPEIG) of July 16, 2003 (Federal Law Gazette I p. 1442) in the version dated December 31, 2019, the possibility of granting applicants permission to use the professional title “health and nurse” who have acquired training outside the scope of this law. The prerequisites for this are that the training has been completed and that the level of training is equivalent to that of the German training.Foreign nursing staff with foreign qualifications – in particular from EU third countries – must submit an application for recognition of their qualifications to the respective state authority (preferably before leaving for Germany). As a rule , the qualifications are not equated with a German qualification in the nursing field. As a result, the applicant or the foreign carer receives the so-called deficit notification.

This gives the carer the opportunity to choose one of two options:

1) Participation in the knowledge test directly after arriving in Germany.

This option is not recommended because there are indeed differences between the international curricula and the curricula in the 16 federal states of the FRG. This means that the likelihood that the applicant will pass this exam is rather low.

2) Participation in an adaptation measure with a certified provider of such measures.

The duration of the adaptation measure varies from person to person and is determined by the respective state authority. This measure includes a theoretical part, where the nurse takes part in frontal teaching, as well as a practical part in a medical facility.

The aim of the adjustment measure is to eliminate all theoretical and practical deficits in foreign qualifications that have been identified by the competent state authority.

Compensate for deficits with CareLend

CareLend supports foreign nurses and employers from Germany in eliminating all deficits in their foreign qualifications identified by the relevant state authority and recorded in the “deficit notification”. This is done through a modular adaptation measure that is individually adapted to each foreign nurse.

Process flow chart

Here you will find out in detail every step from the interview to the receipt of the professional certificate or professional license of your employees as a specialist in the nursing sector. Until the foreign nurse arrives in Germany, all steps are non-binding for you as an employer. We assume various types of costs in advance. Please click here to find out more.

Depending on the funding available in the respective federal state, we apply for funding for the extensive integration of foreign nursing staff.
