Although nurses and midwives constitute more than 50% of the health workforce in many countries in Europe, they are also affected by the challenge of shortages.
Nursing Shortage in Europe
There is a continued global shortage of human resources for health. Nurses and midwives comprise the majority of health care professionals in Europe and thus play a key role in the successful delivery of health services. In line with the growing international health workforce crisis, the European Region currently faces serious shortages of well-qualified nurses and midwives.
Getting an International Nursing Qualification
As one of the few degrees that offers guaranteed job security and stability (especially with the current high demand for nurses), nursing add on programmes are thus extremely sought after.

Since this is a practical oriented course, Czech College would help students in Nostrification (equivalency to Czech qualification) of their existing foreign nursing qualification and prepare them for Approbation test also known as licensure exam. Approbation test consists of four stages in which the first two stages can be done in English or Czech language. Third stage is a 40 days Practical Nursing test conducted in supervision of a Partner Hospital, which would analyze the efficiency of the Nurse to deal with a real Czech speaking patient. After clearing fourth stage of the test the candidate becomes licensed and capable of practicing in Czech Health Care system.
