German for nurses: telc certified language courses

The care sector is facing an increasing shortage of skilled workers. As a result, nursing agencies, hospitals and care facilities are recruiting more and more nursing staff from abroad who do not yet possess sufficient German skills when they start work.

Particularly in the nursing sector, adequate German skills are an indispensable quality for day-to-day work on the ward or in a care facility. Subject-specific medical terminology, conducting telephone calls or conversations with colleagues and patients, as well as written records, must be mastered when working as a nurse.

KERN AG Training offers foreign nursing staff courses in technical German at different levels, exclusively tailored to the nursing sector and fulfilling the requirements of the nursing profession. On request, we also offer German classes on-site at the care facility or hospital.

Certified language skills with the telc certificate

Nursing staff that must prove their language skills by means of certification are also granted the opportunity to complete a telc examination. The telc certificate German B1-B2 Pflege is specially designed for nursing staff. As an alternative, we also offer the more general telc certificate German B2.

If desired, suitable preparatory courses for the telc-certificate can be taken which teach the participants everything they need to successfully complete the examination. The preparatory course covers all the essentials, including examination content and format, and even strategies that will ensure you pass the telc examination.

German courses for elderly care

Advanced German skills are especially valuable in elderly care. Complex topics and terms are common in the area of medicine. A language barrier makes handling these topics difficult. In addition, many older Germans do not know any foreign languages and are thus obliged to communicate in their native German. Knowing German thus makes it easier to treat patients, but also significantly helps communication with doctors and other medical personnel as well. German for Nurses is thus a direct contribution towards a positive coexistence and professional care.

German as a Foreign Language for elderly and nursing care

Such courses teach international nurses specialised medical terminology, but also provide useful language knowledge for everyday use. The acquired language skills help nurses with integrating into their jobs and their new everyday life in Germany.
