    Thank you all for your replies. My husband and I spent a few weeks in Switzerland this past December. While we loved the environment, culture, etc. With three children we don't think we will be able to afford to feed our children in Switzerland. The cost of living is a little more than what we experience currently but the most dramatic difference is food. While the staples of chocolate and cheese are relatively inexpensive, eggs and meats are quite a bit more than current prices. They do taste so much better though.

    None of the respondents to this thread have been on site in more than 4 years. I can guarantee the work situation has changed in that time. Either way I wouldn't hold out for a response after 4 years

    Hi, I graduated from a well known top nursing school in the USA. I only have 4 months of operating room nursing experience. Is it possible to find OR nusing jobs in Switzerland?? I might still need few more weeks of training. Any information is appreciated!

    To work in Switzerland as a nurse, you need to pass one of the national language exams at the B2 level, which is intermediate to advanced (check the Goethe website). After the language requirement is met, then one can transfer their license via the Swiss Red Cross.
    There currently is the development of advanced practice nursing roles within a couple Swiss universities, however as of yet there is no formal scope of practice or certification.
