In the past 10 years we have had many questions come our way. People are naturally curious about the motivations, experiences and competences of European nurses. EMTG was founded after Arnold noticed that there was high unemployment rate in Spain among graduate nurses. At the same time, there was a shortage in the Dutch healthcare sector. This gave him the idea to help place European nurses in the Dutch care sector. We hope this FAQ has been helpful for you. If you need more information do not hesitate to contact us.
