If you wish to become a nurse in Latvia you will need to complete the relevant training and gain the required qualifications before you can begin practicing. In order to work as a nurse in Latvia, it is important that you are an EU citizen. Depending on where you operate, you may be required to speak a number of languages, including English, Latvian and Russian.

How to become a nurse in Latvia

All registered nurses and midwifes must complete a pre-registration nursing or midwifery education program. Registration is renewed every three years and on each occasion, two standards must always be met: the continuing professional development standard (CDP) and the practice standard. Within the three years prior to renewal, nurses must have worked 450 hours of practice and completed 35 hours of learning activity applicable to their field of practice.

 

There are a number of ways in which nurses can become registered:

  • Under Automatic Recognition for adult nurses only

  • Under Acquired Rights for adult nurses only

  • Under General Systems

To be eligible for registration under the above routes it is fundamental that you meet the relevant requirements, including necessary certificates and a transcript from your training institution showing full records of your theory and practice.

 

Working as a nurse in Latvia

Once you are successfully qualified as a nurse in Latvia you will be able to take advantage of paid annual leave, paid sickness leave, maternity rights and a pension scheme.
