Hi All! First Post YAY! I'm halfway through my BSN and having some serious thoughts. Since I'm looking to eventually settle in France (French / US dual passport holder) I am considering finishing or starting over in France, Holland, UK or other countries in EU. Wondering if there is a resource out there to help me find (if any) nursing schools with programs in English so the transition and reqs for working in Europe will be lessened.
Thanks so much. Renny

Are there English Nursing schools in Europe?
Quite a number of them in England, I'd imagine.
Sorry, I just couldn't resist. It tickled my funny bone when I read that line at the AN home page.
I can't really answer your question but you might try contacting the embassies of the countries in which you're interested.
I'd be pretty surprised if you found any trade or professional school in France whose primary instructional language were English.
It might be a bit more likely in Holland though I'd still be surprised. I worked in Holland a fair amount. While there is a substantial portion of the population who do speak English, I saw nothing to suggest the presence of professional schools in English.
Your best bet might be to try to find an immersion school in your desired country and seek employment as a language and science teacher.
If you're not bilingual, I suspect you'd face an uphill battle.
