  • Hi Violetta!

    Hey!, nothing has happened yet...still studying and graduate next April!. Basically right now I'm trying to find out how to obtain the vias and work permit, trying to find out how my training meets national requirements in Belgium, and finding out how much LPNs make there, and the housing situation. Finding out about LPNs in Belgium is HARD!!! I've contacted a hospital a few weeks ago and still have not heard back as to wages, benefits, ect.
    The only info I have to pass on from what I've found (other than to the obvious visa stuff - best to contact the Belgium embassy in the US for the info you need to know!) is that it doesn't seem like you need to take a national exam or anything, but I could be very wrong!. I know you have to register with the nursing "association" in the region you are moving to. Other than that I really haven't had too much luck finding anything more than that!. Like I said, it's hard to find out too much about LPNs there, and it's made harder by the fact that Dutch and French are the main languages, although english is spoken - but a lot of the websites are in either dutch or french (and my french is really rusty!!). I hope to move to Brussels, and it seems like apartments are fairly easy to come by, as Brussels is the EU capital, and a such there is a large turnover in apartment vacancies with govenment/support staff comming and going. Sorry I can't be more helpful!

  • United Colors of Nursing

    I know the University of Leuven is organising a program to integrate foreign nurses in the Belgian system: it is called United Colors of Nursing. We have a huge need for nurses in Belgium, so after the paper work is done, you'll find a job easily. But off course, you have to learn the language.
    I know some years ago a lot of Rumanian nurses came to Brussels with a special program to fill up the lack of nurses.
    It seems 1400 euros is the average salary of a hospital nurse in Belgium. You can earn more if you become a nurse who goes to the private houses of patients. They are independent nurses or can also be employed by a home nursing enterprise.
    Good luck!

    Afin que vous compreniez mieux qui nous sommes et nos actions dans le monde nous vous conseillons :

    Et vous transmettons les dernieres informations :
    L'ambassadeur de Belgique en France Mr Pierre Dominique Schmidt a ete condamne pour traffic de drogue mise en danger de la vie d'autrui, traffic d'etres humains et pedophilie en bande organisee par le Tribunal de Paris en juin 2009.
    Une instruction est ouverte aupres du Tribunal de Paris et du Procureur du Roy a Bruxelles pnur crimes contre l'humanite, plaintes a l'encontre du President de la Commission Europeenne Jose Manuel Barroso, du Commissaire de la DG DEV , Louis MICHEL, de Di Ruppo, de Wim Delvoye, de Jean Luc Dehaenne ...
    Les detournements de fonds publiques tant dans l'affaire CDE/CDI, les liaisons avec les blanchiements d'argent en Polynesie Francaise et les affaires de pedophilie et meurtres : ROCHE, VINCENT et MAHLER ont permis de mettre au grand jour les criminels politiciens et fonctionnaires qui utilisent leurs fonctions non pas pour aider les populations mais bien au contraire pour tuer les populations en votant des lois liberticides et en instaurant un regime NAZI.
    Ainsi le grand ami de Jose Manuel Barroso : Mr Hans Martens, president de EPC European Policy Center au 4e etage de Residence Palace organise avec HSS Hans Siegel Schtiftung au 3e etage de Residence Palace, juste sous les bureaux loues par les Nations Unies, des stages par l'intermediaire de l'IET Institut Europeen Theologie du Boulevard St Michel Bruxelles et de l'Universite Catholique de Louvain pour les Journalistes de Reuters et de l'AFP qui ne sont en fait que l'organe de propagande de ce 4e Reich.
    Le ministre des Affaires Etrangeres Karel de Gucht est intervenu de nombreuses fois avec son comparse Louis MICHEL pour animer ces stages conferences sous le haut patronage de la Commission Europeenne, DG DEV, sous section Recherbhe avec EIT European Institute Training si cher a Jose Manuel Barroso qu'il a detourne le Budget COCOBU pour offrir des millions d'euros a Hans Martens president de EIT et EuropeanVoice.
    Vous comprenez maintenant pourquoi ces criminels contre l'humanite ont tout tente a l'encontre du Dr Bahram Faraghi Daryan et de Son Altesse Royale, la princesse Edwige Vincent de Bourbon, mis en place a la presidence de l'IET UE lors du Conseil europeen des 15-16 juin 2006 a Bruxelles, en presence des presidents Georges Bush, Vladimir Putin, du president de l'Equateur, sur requete du President de la Republique Francaise Mr Jacques Chirac, beau-frere de S.A.R. la princesse Edwige Vincent Caudie de Bourbon.

    Tv show the Russian president Medvenev showing to the World, the new money, call IMU International Money Unit.
    1 IMU = 2 €
    The co-president of the World Bank WHF, Khan Dr Bahram Faraghi Daryan, creator and co-foundator of this new economic and social system, had made this speech :
    " Central Bank should pay every person. Freedom for debt slavery. Stop dictators of administrations.
    1 - forbid private banks to create money. They will still make loans, but like building societies or credit unions, they will only lend that which they actually possess
    2 - an independant public body - a branch of the Central Bank - create all the money on a regular basis.
    The amount it would create would be determined in accord with the monetary objectives set by the government and the Committee would be accountable directly to Parliament.
    3 - government spends this money into society via its spending projects in the public or private spheres
    4 - private banks will now compete to attract this money into their sarving accounts, in oder to lend out this real money to their customers.
    This reform seeks to effect the full public ownership of the money creation power.The full social ownership of the power to create money It answers the democratic question : To whom does the power to create money belong ?
    It answers it by saving " it belongs to the people "
    Money in circulation = products for people = consuption = production = work
    World Human Facility WHF community promote Human Rights and Financial Freedom ! It means direct paiement to every person !
    Everyone has right to have Private Budget
