Hi everybody. I an American nurse with five years ICU experience. I am thinking of migrating to Germany. Does any one know how I can go about applying for the blue card program? I don't speak any German so it is hard to get all the information that I need.

The need to speak German fluently will be required. Also hard if not from the EU in finding a employer willing to go the route. Found this that may help
Who can apply for the EU blue card?A foreigner, a citizen of a non-EU- country, can apply for the EU blue card if
a) he or she has a German or an accredited foreign or a university degree that is comparable to a German one.
b) he or she has a working contract with a gross annual compensation of at least €46.400 (3.867 Euros per month), a contract in the so-called shortage occupation (scientists, mathematics, engineers, doctors and IT- skilled workers) with the amount of €36.192 (3.016 Euros per month).
