On September 19th, representatives of the City Development Agency Banja Luka made a presentation about Banja Luka for the first group of the participants of the pilot project “Nurse Scout” that came from Mexico.
Qi Consult GmbH (QIC) in cooperation with Kolping Education Consulting GmbH (KEC) and other German companies are planning the implementation of our program “Carer Scout“. This program is part of the “Qualified Immigration” process, which is a permanent solution to the shortage of qualified personnel in the German health system. People already working in Germany cannot fulfill the necessities of the health system, and that is why nurses from abroad need to be recruited. The first groups of candidates will be coming from countries of South America and Eastern Europe. Participants from EX YU countries will not be able to participate, which is one way to stop the departure of medical personnel.
Project “Nurse Scout” was earlier presented to the City Development Agency Banja Luka. After analyzing potential areas, traffic and other conditions, Banja Luka was chosen for the destination to build a Training Center. Apart from Training Center, a Campus for nursing elderly people in Germany will be located in Banja Luka, too. All expenses of the candidates such as accommodation, scholarship, health insurance, equipment sucha as laptops and cellphones will be covered by QI Consult.
Before the candidates are employed in German healthcare system, workers should be prepared in terms of language and technology. Chosen workers will be accommodated in Campus during the preparation course, which will last for six months. After successfully finished the course and passed exams, candidates will go to Germany to start working.
