To work as a nurse in the Danish healthcare system, proficiency in Danish is essential for obtaining employment

Language Proficiency

If you aspire to work as a nurse in the Danish healthcare system, it is crucial to have a good command of the Danish language in order to secure a job.

Requirements for Language Skills

Previously, passing a Danish language test was mandatory for progressing with your application for nurse authorization. However, it is no longer a strict requirement. Nevertheless, you still need to be able to communicate effectively in Danish to obtain and complete a 6-month employment for adaptation and training purposes.

Your employer holds the responsibility to ensure that, as a employed nurse, you can demonstrate a satisfactory level of Danish language proficiency suitable for the specific duties you will undertake.

Thus, Danish language skills are necessary for achieving authorization and working as a nurse. We strongly encourage all applicants seeking Danish authorization as nurses to begin practicing Danish.
