iam malawian by nationality. iam a registered nurse and have been working as a theatre nurse in uk for the past three years.
i got a scholarship to study masters degree at umea university. the scholarship caters for tuition and living costs for me only .iam having a baby and will be 3-4 months in aug-september when am supposed to start the course.i would like to bring the baby with me and a nanny.

Sorry but this will not be possible - even of your qualifications were recognised - you would need to be fluent in Swedish - I know quite a few overseas qualified staff and all have been required to be fluent in Swedish

The operating theatre will have Swedish as its working language and you would need to maintain patient journals in Swedish and following Swedish healthcare laws as well as follow the Swedish medication guidelines and liaise with other staff etc in Swedish

However if you could learn some Swedish you might be able to work part time in Care Homes for the elderly or disabled etc - this is what many overseas trained staff do while they are perfecting their Swedish - I know quite a few students who used to do care home night shifts

If you are planning to bring an employee with you to Sweden then you will need to look at the visa/tax implications of this - as employer you will be responsible for social insurance payments

For a a non-EU citizen you need to have a visa and a signed contract for a salary over 13,000SEK per month - unless the person is eligible under au-pair regulations and then the salary is over 3,500SEK with free room and board

Nannies are fairly unusual in Sweden because Sweden subsidised childcare so thar parents pay only 1250kr (around £110) per month for full time childcare - however the problem is that you are not eligible until the child is 12 months
