Registered nurses (Nordics)

--Recruitment contact--


Are you ready to rock your world and start an exciting journey in the Scandinavia? Would you want to experience the Nordic magic for a minimum of two years? Work as a registered nurse from a holistic perspective,  part of a skilled team of doctors, nurses and other staff?

In Finland & Sweden - countries well known for their melodic and hard rock bands - you live in a free-spirited environment with plenty of nature around you, but usually still within easy access to cities. The Nordic countries are known for their work-life balance, well-functioning societies, high levels of trust & happiness and all-time-low levels of corruption.

Where-ever you would end up living, you will have nature and water close to you, as the countries have thousands of lakes and rivers, and even most urban environments have parks and green areas in walking distance. There is a strong belief in personal development and life-long learning embedded in these societies, ensuring that if you would choose to stay for longer, you will always have opportunities to grow and develop in your career

In the Nordics you have generous family benefits and excellent educational system. Education is free of charge, and even childrens' hobbies are often with very low fees. For adults, there are possibilities to learn new skills during your free-time starting from different art forms all the way up to driving boats and cooking. The different regions have their quirks but also plenty to offer in terms of sports, nature and holistic well-being for those interested in fresh and active life-style. They are certainly fantastic for families with small children, offering calm and secure environments, surrounded by nature and close communities where children can roam free.
