Nursing Staff Programme

For qualified foreign nurses looking to practice their profession in Germany in the future, Sprachenakademie designs at the request of and in partnership with potential employers (hospitals, nursing homes), further education programmes preparing participants for entering the German daily working environment. Naturally, the requirements of the prospective employers and resulting needs of the participants are at the forefront of the programme.

The central focus of the courses is the acquisition and development of German language skills. Alongside the consolidation of general German skills which provide a solid basis for professional communication, specialist language skills in the fields of medicine and care are also conveyed. A central aspect is the professional communication with colleagues, supervisors and patients or clients. In addition, participants receive an intercultural introduction, specifically taking into account their future professional context.
