I am a Senior in Nursing School (18 month BSN program) and am interested in international nursing. I am very interested in your comments about working in Germany. Would they hire new grads on these bases in Germany? Which base did you work out of? Is there a time commitment that you must promise upon taking a job at the base?

3. i'm not sure what the requirements for knowledge of German will be ...
4. this is before any differences in the historical culture and relationship between provider groups in german Healthcare ... ( germany historically was quite physician centric in the hands on way)
alternatively if you want Europe without the hassles associated with going on the local net what's the picture in civilian jobs working for the US forces in Europe
