One thought about nursing in Spain: Check on your ability to get hired. You won't be able to "opositar" for a public hospital or public health service nursing position unless you're an EU citizen or married to one.
I am aware of that, which is why I was going to put nursing on the back burner for a while. As I stated in my previous post, I would like to do a Masters in Spain in the USEV and I was wondering if you had any information on it. I hope one day to gain citizenship to the EU by marrying an EU citizen. Not just for the papers, but for the right intentions. Then, begin the arduous process of applying for permanent residence and EU passport. All in due time, I'm still too young to be seriously thinking about it. Also, I would like to know your experience in Spain so far or in the past studying in a university environment and how long it took you to get there. The process and everything if you can tell me.
I too look at the word matrón and say oh dear now. It seems as if my dream of being one is very far away from becoming reality. I just won't be able to get my degree homologado in time So, I decided to just continue with my Spanish language acquisition and do a Masters in Spanish. Though I still have to figure out which one. I am constantly translating everything from English to Spanish, from what I see on the street, to live conversations that I am having with someone (even as I type this I feel myself translating). So, I may do the Masters in Translation and Interculturality (not sure how to translate Interculturalidad to English), but that's what I am thinking. Why was it challenging to apply to a public university? You would think that applying to a private uni would be difficult.So are you studying online with the university from within Spain and teaching at the same time?I am shooting to be able to go to the USEV and be present rather than going online. I would learn better and sitting behind a computer wouldn't be stimulating for me. If you don't mind me asking, how much did/does it cost you to study a Masters in Spain? Do you pay more or generally the same amount as an EU citizen? I am so relieved to hear that you didn't have to get your degree legalized in any way to get it, I am hoping that I have the same luck. Are you in Spain on a student visa? Since your uni is online, did they still grant you a student visa for it? How long did it take you to apply and get in? I am seriously hoping to be back in Spain for the 2013-2014 curso with a vacation to Sevilla in April-June for Feria. Then come back and get visa papers sorted out and preparing things to leave...for the third time. My ultimate goal is to become a permanent resident of Spain. So, we'll see how it goes. :crosses fingers:Is the language something that you find difficult? And therefore you are getting bad grades?I also fear the same. I will be on their turf studying under their language and bureaucratic system and I fear that no one will want to help me. But, I lived there for 2 important years of my life so I'll make it work!
For the degree I'm studying, I would've needed a Spanish degree (homologado to a specific major) to be considered easily for the public university. Because I'm just homologado a grado I was at the back of the line for consideration to be admitted. I am studying and teaching. My situation is different, however, since I'm a Spanish resident and can legally live and work here. I'm nearly 100% certain that visas are not granted for online universities. I payed somewhere under 4000 euros for a one year program. From application to being admitted, the whole process for both universities took just around a month. I'm not getting bad grades, I'm actually doing better than some of my Spanish peers. However, the language is occasionally a struggle and I have a "C2"/superior/bilingual level of Spanish. It just means I have to study longer and work harder to learn the information when it comes time for the tests. In terms of homework and other assignments, I'm getting good grades. It's just a lot harder for me to study than it used to be.
