There are only 3 requirements to qualify for the Care With Care Work in Germany Program:
In order to successfully submit your application, you need to take 4 simple steps:
1. Submit your application through the website.
2. Receive Welcome Email with the New Candidate To-Do List.
3. Complete Professional Profile
3. Enroll in the A1 language class.
4. You will ultimately receive a call from one of our profiling agents to confirm your application.
1. Collect and send us a COMPLETE set of documents before you start your A2 German course.
2. Complete your A1 course with a 70% passing grade. Send us an email once you do!
3. Pay 50% of the translation fee before you start your A2 course.
4. After you have accomplished all these steps we will cover your A2 course costs.
Once you have finished your A2 level we will start matching you with an employer of your choice: a hospital, a rehabilitation clinic or an elderly care facility. You will have to sit in one or a few interviews with potential employers to get to know each other. We will provide you with interview preparation tips. If everything goes well, you should have a job offer before you start your B2 language course.
Once you receive a job offer, we will file your documents to obtain qualification recognition so that you could officially work as a nurse in Germany. This is a lengthy process that varies a lot regionally, both in terms of requirements and timelines. If you get a partial qualification recognition, you will either need to do an internship with your employer (if it's a university hospital) or we will organize a QR preparation course for you in Manila followed by a qualification exam in Germany (for all other employers).
This step is usually being done along the qualification recognition. While we do the paperwork, you study hard! In the end you'll have to take one of the three exams that are recognized in Germany: Goethe, TELC or ÖSD. You can choose whichever exam you would like — we would cover the costs for your first attempt. The number of attempts is not limited, but we would strongly recommend to try to pass it as soon as possible so that your employer doesn't wait for you too long.
Once we have your B2 exam results, we will file your documents to get you a work permit and the German medical insurance. With these documents at hand, we will get you a visa appointment. Once you get a visa stamp, we will buy you a plane ticket, organize the departure briefing and wave you goodbye!
To seek for opportunities abroad was a pain because almost every country requires two years of nursing experience which we didn't have. One day my boyfriend saw a Care With Care ad for the Journey to Germany Program. It ticked a lot of checkboxes: no experience needed, no placement fee, the chance to work at the same employer. Luckily, we are both into learning languages and it was fun for us. A year after we started our journey, we finally took a flight and set foot in Germany. Working here has its perks: learning a foreign language, a new culture, earn more than what we could back home, travel around Europe, and 30 days of paid vacation leave. San ka pa? I wrote this text while being on a plane to the Philippines to spend my vacation. Thanks to Care With Care for helping us throughout the process and making our dream come true.
I am a RN who never worked as a nurse in the Philippines for a few reasons: low salary, patient nurse ratio and unemployment rate of nurses. So I decided to make a career change and I worked as a call center agent as this job provides a better income than nursing in the Philippines. But at some point in life we nurses hear our calling... So I decided to work abroad and I found out about Care With Care. One of the main requirements was to pass the German language exam. I was able to complete the course in around 8 months including the exam and now I am a nurse in Erftstadt, Germany! Let’s be real, learning a new language is difficult but if that is what it takes for you to have a greener pasture and to fulfil your dreams, then take it as a challenge and believe me it’s all worth it. P.S.: Travelling around the EU is one of the benefits, and who doesn't like travelling!
Years back I thought I would never have the opportunity to use my nurse license. For the past 10 years after passing NLE I worked as a checker in a department store, fast food chain and as a call center agent. But Care With Care suddenly provided a tremendous opportunity for inexperienced nurses like me. They helped me to enroll in a German class, to arrange documents, found the right employer for me. Now I am a licensed nurse working in a senior care facility here in Germany. Thanks Care With Care for being an instrument for achieving what I am and what I have today.
I must say that I already had trust issues when choosing the agency that would help me to put my dreams about working in Germany into reality. But then I heard about Magsaysay and Care With Care from my friends who are also working here in Germany and came with the same agency. The Care With Care team helped us at every step of the way: from paperwork to an early appointment at the embassy, and up until we finally started to work here in Germany. The whole process — learning the language, passing the exam and employer interview, etc. — was indeed difficult and stressful. But it was all worth it!
My journey to Germany is one of the best things that happened to me as a nurse. I have not only learned one of the most challenging languages, but also worked with the great team of Care With Care who played a big part in making my dream come true. I owe a lot of what I have now to Magsaysay and Care With Care. I fulfilled all the goals that I had set since day one of my journey: I am now working in one of the biggest hospitals in Germany and am enjoying every bit of my life.
