Hello, I have a BSN from Oakland Univ., Mich. and have been working in germany for 12 years. Working in a foreign hospital does have its drawbacks in regards to nursing. On a positive note, I have seen many changes in the right direction in how nursing is progressing here, but there is still a long way to go. I'm a relative new internet user and stumbeled across this page. Are there any other american nurses working here?
