Nursing in Europe

Some of our clients in Ireland, England and the Channel Islands are interested in recruiting Staff Nurses from EU member countries such as Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Sweden.


EU directives mean your nursing qualification can be recognised in EU countries, enabling you to practise freely between member states.  Relocating to another EU county for employment reasons can be a very worthwhile venture.  You can gain invaluable clinical skills in a new healthcare system, soak up their culture and broaden your social skills.


The main obstacle to employment as a qualified nurse or midwife in another European country is the language. Cpl Healthcare has recognised the following reading material which may help you further develop your English language skills:

  • Professional English in Medicine – Cambridge
  • Nursing in UK (for overseas nurse)

Both books are available to purchase from Foyle’s Bookstores either in London (shops in Charing Cross or Shepherds Bush) or online at www.foyles.co.uk.
