What will you do on your Curaçao nursing internship?

During your internship in Curaçao you will discover that you will be given much more responsibilities than you would in the Netherlands if you did an internship in healthcare.

Of course you will receive good guidance, but you can perform nursing actions more quickly. This makes your internship on Curaçao extremely educational. 

Internship allowance in healthcare

Unfortunately, Curaçao is not a rich island and there is real poverty in some parts of the island. Partly because of this, there is unfortunately little or no money available in healthcare to be able to pay you an internship compensation.

It is beautiful work that will give you a lot of satisfaction, but this is something you should take into account when budgeting your internship period.

Doing an internship, also on weekends and evenings

Most likely this is not news to you, but we would like to bring it to your attention: All healthcare institutions are open 24 hours a day, which also means that you will sometimes also be scheduled in the evenings and at weekends. Experience shows that this always takes place in consultation with each other as much as possible.

As an intern in care on Curaçao you also want to have a weekend off to experience the fun party and the infamous Happy Hours.   

Anything else you want to know?

You are preparing your internship, you are scouring the internet for all kinds of information. We understand very well that you have questions about this and would also like to hear them from you. You can always contact us via the contact form or ask us a question via WhatsApp.  


Not all accommodations on Curaçao have standard linen available. That is why we offer this service. That saves a lot of space in your suitcase ;-) 

The linen consists of a pillow, bottom sheet and duvet cover. On Curaçao we do not sleep under blankets because of the heat. There are no towels. 

If you use our pick-up service, you will receive your linen directly at Hato, otherwise you can pick it up at our office.  


Calling each other on Curaçao is very expensive. That is why a local SIM card is definitely recommended. 

You put this SIM card in your phone, but you keep your normal WhatsApp number. This way you can call and app with the home front & friends via WhatsApp as you are used to.

You can then call each other on Curaçao at a local rate with your new local telephone number.

If you have a pick-up service, you will receive your SIM card directly at Hato, otherwise you can pick it up at our office.
