There are different sources of funding and financial support available for jobs in the healthcare and nursing sector to facilitate transition or entry into this field and make it affordable.
However, these support schemes depend on several factors and need to be checked individually for everyone interested. A first point of contact for information and advice might be the waff (the Vienna Employment Promotion Fund) which will help you find out about possible options.
Under its “Jobs PLUS Ausbildung” programme, waff offers Viennese residents looking for a job free training in the field of healthcare and nursing. For the length of the training period, you will receive financial support from the AMS Wien (Vienna Public Employment Service). After you have completed your training, you can start work immediately.
More detailed information will be provided during the information sessions which waff holds at regular intervals.
