    My Advices to you are.... First, Learn the Language, It‘s really important. Passing the Goethe A1 Prüfung is not enough. I‘m also a nurse I graduated years ago, been here for a year. and still processing my papers. Second, have your School Documents be translated in German at the German Embassy, because it‘s really expensive if you have your documents (Gardeschool, High School and the most important of all...College Diploma, T.O.R) be translated here in Germany. They don‘t care if you speak Fluent English. Their School System is Different. Studying Nursing here would be better..they pay you while you study! you earn like 400-500 euro a month on the first year. Good luck to you =) and congrats for being engaged

    @ pinay nurse ako,

    I have a cousin in Germany and she is studying full time to become a nurse. First of all Tiger Lily is right, learn the language by heart. You can start as early as now. There is the Goethe-Institute here in Manila, you can find it on the Manila German embassy. Since you are still young, it should be best to re-take nursing for a couple of years in Germany for your smooth transition. Good luck

    Hi Pinay Nurse,

    I am currently in the same situation as you are. I was wondering if you have found out the steps to be able to work in Germany as a nurse coming from the Philippines? I've tried to do a lot of research but to no avail so far. It's all just gray areas for me...I haven't found one single site that gives me an overview of the requirements and the things that I need to undergo should I process for work in Germany.

    I hope to hear some input from you.

    Thanks!

    hi everyone,
    been also a nurse in the philippines and married to a german national and moved here almost 3 years ago.itīs not easy to find a job even if you have experiences as a nurse in the philippines.1st you need the recognition of your profession(which is just normal even in other parts of europe) and your no. 1 problem which you will encounter is bureaucracy.iīve filed my papers since 2010 but until now itīs not recognized for some reason that they want more and more documents from your school even if you canīt provide anymore.iīve already spoken to a lot of people here, from the German Red Cross to Caritas and to Diakonie but their answers were all the same.iīve also done a few volunteer jobs at these institutions.itīs very common here to do volunteer jobs.if you want togo back to school just to make things easier,first you have to do 1 year Practicum which is also very common here before being admitted to a nursing school. i did 3 weeks Practicum in a hospital but did not do 1 year bec. i didnīt like the work assignments.my assignment was to care for old patients daily like bathing, washing, feeding( work in nursing homes) and so little work in medical care and here you are an all around worker, from transport,bringing specimens to the lab etc.
    so for nurses in the philippines who are planning to work here in germany, do a lot of research.maybe go to norway or denmark.
    as for me, i still donīt have a job and itīs very frustrating.

    Hi fellow Pinays. I will share my story to you not to discourage you rather to encourage. Until this date I am working here in Germany as a nurse...25 years. In my time when I started to find a nursing job it was easy, thanks God! Now things here in Germany had changed a lot. Ok, you are still in the Phil. Right? I am advicing you to come to Germany already married. Unfortunately the process to get married needs Paper Works. Tell your future husband to go to Ortsamt where he is residing and ask necessary papers how to bring you here in Germany. Let him go to the Web Site of the German Embassy in the Phil. And there find the necessary requirements what he needs before he will go to the Phil. To marry you. While you in the Phil. Gather all needed papers go to NSO to get needed certifications, what you Need you can See them also from the requirements posted by the .German Embassy to marry a German Citizen. At the Same time you have to enroll immediately to Goethe German Language School this is a must for you (when you are in German you will again study the German Language for Integration). Granting you are now here in Germany through marriage, you automatically get this so called Arbeitserlaubnis (at the Arbeitsamt here in Germany). Before you can work here as a nurse unfortunately you have to Study here in Germany again for 1 Year. Make sure all Educational credentials you have Must Be translated to German and to Be authenticated by the .German Embassy in the Phil. Again, the Situation had changed a Lot. Nursing System here in Germany is far different from the Phil. We have what we call Zimmer Pflege. Bed side care, I.V. Medications, admission, discharge everything is your responsibility to about 15 patients. You are Lucky if you get only 10 patients. You will earn about 1,500€ monthly netto with 3 shifting (Morning, afternoon and evening). You are young take this as a Challenge. Don't ever take Things so light on your shoulders because you are Coming here abroad. Remember you are married and maybe wanted a family....and your Family in the Phil. For sure are waiting for your help financially. Dear Pinay Nurse I wish you all the Best and good luck. I Hope this One will help you facilitate Things.
