If you received your medical education outside the European Union, you will need to confirm your qualifications by going through the nostrification procedure and the following stages.

Main stages

Nostrification is the recognition of foreign diplomas of school, higher and postgraduate professional education. In Slovakia, nostrification of a diploma is a necessary condition both for employment in the specialty and for continuing studies. The decision on the compliance of higher education with the norms of Slovak legislation is made by the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sports of the Slovak Republic. The procedure for reviewing documents and recognizing a diploma can last up to 90 days. If necessary, the Ministry has the right to request additional documents from the applicant at its discretion.

What is necessary for nostrification of a diploma?

To nostrify a diploma, it is enough to prepare the documents listed below and send them to the Ministry of Education of Slovakia. We are ready to assist in this process, and then your documents are guaranteed to get to the right department of the Ministry.

An important condition for successful work in Slovakia is knowledge of the Slovak language. We provide preparatory courses in the Slovak language for our candidates.

At the moment, Slovak clinics have introduced a new mandatory requirement for candidates coming to work - knowledge of the Slovak language at least at the basic A1 level.
The Slovak language is not yet required for the interview, but upon arrival at work you must demonstrate to the employer that you have prepared for the start of work and started learning the language in advance. This is necessary for faster adaptation and the ability to communicate effectively with colleagues and patients. 
When you have passed the interview and submit documents to the consulate for a residence permit, the hospital provides you with a PRISL'UB NA PRIJATIE - a promise of employment.
After your arrival in Slovakia, you sign an employment contract with the employer on the spot. And upon arrival, the employer has the right to refuse to sign a work contract if he does not see the proper level of language proficiency.
Therefore, we offer you training in the Slovak language in our courses specially organized for our candidates.
– Classes are held online on our video platform;
– Duration – 100 academic hours (3 times a week for 2 hours (60 minutes each), in the evening) – this is approximately 3 months. The schedule is flexible and can change to suit the needs of participants.
– during the courses you will learn the basics of the general Slovak language and the general Slovak medical language. 

We strongly recommend that you pay due attention to learning the language when taking courses, do not miss classes and do everything that the lecturer asks you to do.

After nostrification of the diploma, the nurse has the right to start working in public or private clinics or hospitals in Slovakia. At this stage you are working as a nurse's assistant (as an assistant).
The employment contract is initially for a period of one year of work as a nursing assistant. 

Salaries start from 650 to 900 euros per month net. Additional payments are possible for:
– evening shifts;
– night shifts;
– work on weekends;
– work on public holidays;
- working beyond normal limits.

In order to start working as a full-fledged Nurse, you need to prepare and pass exams to confirm your qualifications and knowledge of the Slovak language during the first year of work in the hospital. 

To work as a medical specialist, you must go through the stage of confirming your early specialization. This stage becomes available only after passing the qualification exam and the Slovak language proficiency exam. 

For recognition, you must provide certificates and other documents confirming your specialization. It is important that the number of years of the training program in the country of specialization and in Slovakia coincide. It is possible to obtain specialization directly in Slovakia upon referral from an employer by passing the necessary exams.

If necessary, your employer helps with completing the required internship, passing academic differences, and developing further prospects for your cooperation with him. After a doctor or nurse has confirmed their specialization, they can work independently as specialists, receive higher wages and develop in their field.


Having gone through all the stages, you - full-fledged medical worker in Slovakia
