Well how fluent in German are you? It's a requirement to work there.
Are you an EU citizen?

Try doing a search in regards to Germany as there have been a few German nurses post. They state how hard it is for them to find work so coming from outside the EU will be really hard. A couple of the posts also mention how to get sorted in regards to license however i don't think there are anything online in this regards. Next hurdle will be getting a work permit and being fluent in German will definitely be a requirements as you will need a employer to get a permit plus not from the EU will make it even harder to find employer

As you are not an EU citizen it will be almost impossible for you to work as a nurse in Germany.
Working visa application and nursing registration are two seperate processes.
Visit the Manila German Embassy website for specific information.
To become registered also will depend on the region you want to live, all 16 federal states have their own regional board.
Online applications are not available in Germany for nurse registration.
You must show proof of language proficiency with your application, that means you should take courses in German before applying for registration, otherwise your application won't be processed.
In May a new law will be introduced that facilitates recruitment of Eastern European nurses. The recruitment agencies are prepared to flood the German job market, so employers are unlikely to sponsor a Philippine nurse, when they can employ European nurses without the need to obtain a working visa.
Please consider this.
