Unskilled nursing staff in Norway, often women with an immigrant background, are offered adult training programs in nursing. The theoretical part of the education can be done as a part time study over one to two years. Afterwards it is possible to take a certificate and become an auxiliary nurse, but first one must have five years full time practice from relevant work. The problem is that the candidates usually are offered less than 20 percent positions in the health care system, and if they don’t get extra duties, they can be working as unskilled nursing staff for 10-41 years before they are offered the opportunity to take the certificate. The way the practical part of the education is organized has huge consequences for their economy and social life. The study is based on interviews with nursing staff with different positions in nursing home, and supplemented with data from fieldworks in two nursing home wards.
