Information for international nurses

Have you gained vocational qualifications as a nurse/male nurse in your home country and would like to work with us at University Hospital Tübingen? 

To do so, the regional council in Stuttgart needs to provide accreditation for your qualifications as a midwife, nurse or male nurse.

Recognition of your vocational qualification

We offer international nursing staff the opportunity to complete the assessment test for this at the University Hospital. In certain cases, you can also attend an adaptation course at our centre instead. You need to provide evidence of having reaching level B2 in your knowledge of German, in addition to passing the assessment test.

We will help you with all the necessary applications and correspondence.

You will receive a contract as a nurse assistant. Once accreditation has been successfully obtained, it is possible to employ you as a member of staff with a permanent job contract – provided that you have a residence and work permit.

What we need

For a consultation we need the following application documents:

  • Covering letter
  • CV

Good to know

For your professional recognition process as a nurse as well as for a successful integration in your work context we try our very best. For example there are no costs for all lessons (B2-lessons, nursing lessons, SkillsLab etc.) in Tübingen. If you stay at our clinic for at least three years after your recognition, all costs will be covered from the clinics side. If you leave the hospital before completing three years of work, a certain percentage of the costs will have to be paid back to the clinic. Before the start of work at our clinic this agreement will be contractually regulated.

After the consultation, please submit the following application documents:
  • Assessment by the regional council
  • Evidence of your current language skills, at least to level B1
  • References (e.g. contract of employment)
  • Qualifications from your nursing training in your home country and a certified translation of your qualifications
  • Work permit
  • Residence permit

We are looking forward to getting you to know!
