The most significant differences are in the admission criteria and the length of each program.To do the Nursing Ausbildung and BSc Nursing dual program students must complete their higher secondary school education in science subjects and pass their board exams with good marks. The schooling qualification required for both programs is the same.
For Nursing Ausbildung, one must study German in India and pass the B1/B2 Goethe test. A B1 test pass sometimes qualifies an applicant to attend interviews conducted by hospitals. In general, the required level for Ausbildung is B2.
Ausbildung Nursing students start their vocational training in Germany from the first month and receive training from hospital staff. B2 level skills are suitable for following the apprenticeship program. You can study in Germany from India while applying for the BSc Nursing dual program.Before applying for a spot in a dual program at a public university and a participating hospital, one must complete the M Foundation course. The BSc Nursing course of the University does not include the Language study and M Foundation course, and individuals will need to cover the associated costs themselves.
The foundation courses result in meeting the academic entry criteria for the BSc nursing course at a German public university and achieving an Abitur-level academic qualification.
German public universities consider the Abitur qualification as an entry requirement for a bachelor’s degree course.
Holders of the International Certificate of A-Levels or the IB Diploma of an American high school meet the same criteria. Those who have completed at least one year of university education in countries like India after their 12th standard education qualify for Abitur
Nurses from Kerala
Those who attend a foundation year program in Germany and pass the FSP exam meet the Abitur criteria for university education. For the nurses from Kerala, Germany is not a new country. They have gone to work in Germany from India years ago and settled there. Their hard work and dedication are recognized worldwide.
Nursing was once a well-paying and steady profession attracted by young women just for job satisfaction. It has now become a highly sought-after profession to immigrate to the country of their choice. Jobs that were primarily reserved for women are now in demand across India by both men and women.
