You have already a nursing qualification and would like to work in Austria?

The website “Nursing in Austria” serves as the first point of contact for nurses/nursing assistants who have completed their education abroad (in the EU/EEA, Switzerland, or in a third country) and who would like to work in Austria as a nurse with a degree in Health and Nursing Care, a nursing assistant level 2 or a nursing assistant level 1.

By using the guide you can find out

  • whether your qualifications need to undergo recognition or nostrification and
  • who your contact person is.

The website was commissioned by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Social Affairs, Health, Care and Consumer Protection in 2024.
