At Pleyade we like our employees to be as multicultural as the Dutch society. That’s why we offer European (EU / EEA) nursing students a unique Eduployment Erasmus+ program. After your internship, as the ultimate goal, we offer you a full-time contract. On top of that you have many possibilities for personal growth.
Step 1: Erasmus+ Internship
During the semesters before your internship you learn the 1200 most important words (/word forms) you need to express yourself in Dutch. We pay for the teacher, the classroom and any support. You only pay for the study app on your phone or tablet. The classes take place 2 days a week.
Once you passed the beginners course, it’s time to come to the Netherlands for your 6-month internship. The goal is to become acquainted with the Pleyade organisation and Dutch healthcare in general. Besides performing nursing procedures, social interaction and legislation are of great importance in the Netherlands. Therefore you will learn how to perform ADL-care (Activities of Daily Living) during your internship. This is fundamental to your profession as nurse.
Those who are eager to learn more and sign the commitment for the whole Eduployment program will learn additional healthcare language to exercise nursing practices on Pleyade’s triage and rehabilitation sections.
During these 6 months free housing is arranged and Pleyade provides (hot) meals on internship days. Because you are an Erasmus+ student you may receive an EU-scholarship for a living. Which you can use to to explore the Netherlands, because you won’t work for more than 5 days in a row (36-40 hours a week).
Step 2: Advanced Level Dutch (B1)
Step 3: Your career in the Netherlands begins
When you are registrated, Pleyade gives you the space and time needed to get used to working in the Netherlands. You don’t have to bear all the responsibilities of a nurse right away. In the first year, you’ll be accompanied by experienced colleagues, growing in your role as a nurse step by step. After you have achieved the learning goals which you agree on in the beginning, you are ready for the full responsibility of the nurse.
Working as a nurse at Pleyade
The ultimate goal of the Eduployment program is to make you operate as a full responsible nurse in Dutch healthcare. As a full responsible nurse of Pleyade you know exactly what your clients and colleagues expect from you and you also know what to expect from them. You are a member of the team and ready to take on the full responsibility asked of the nursing profession.
