Authorisation and License for Health Personnel
The Norwegian Directorate of Health is responsible for granting authorisation required for all categories of professions within the legally regulated health sector.
Authorisation represents a full and permanent approval, while licenses impose one or more limitations with respect to duration, independent or supervised practice/training etc.
The Register for Health Personnel (Helsepersonellregisteret) is continually updated and contains the names of those who have an authorisation or license to work in Norway in all areas of the health sector. For more information on how to apply
