- May 29, '12 by Ashley, PICU RNThe majority of users here at All Nurses are based in America. There may be a few people from Germany around here, but I've personally never run into any.
I'd suggest doing an internet search and calling local hospitals in Germany to search for positions. You'll also need to find out what you'll have to do to get a license to practice nursing in Germany. Good luck!

There are a few posts from German nurses and they all say the same about not enough jobs and pay not so great. Don't be surprised if they expect you to be fluent in German. If you do a search for Germany you may find the posts that gives info on how to register
- Jun 3, '12 by Nicole Henze-Jonesi’m a german nurse, having worked in the uk for the last 11year. i’m thinking of coming back to germany. what’s the salary for a nurse ingermany now?
- Jun 4, '12 by mrs.-nancyI know that in Germany it needed a lot nurses. I expect to go next year and an agency of job offered 2600 euros.
- Jun 6, '12 by MonaLunaHi, I am a German nurse and happy to help you!
Nursing in Germany is a lot different than Nursing in the US. Much more work!
Please think about that you have pay high taxes. From 2600 Euro, you will have maybe 1300-1600 euros, depends on if you having children or what your husband is doing.
Jobs are easy to get these days.
But you need to speak German ( same in the US, right, you have to speak the native language of the country where you will work)
Getting you license in Germany isn't so hard this webpage is telling you what you need
If you have further question, please let me know, I would love to help you, because I know how difficult it is to get their license in a foreign country

- Jun 22, '12 by Nicole Henze-JonesI trained in Germany and came to England in March 2001. Just wondering how nursing has progressed since... If at all. I trained from 1996-1999 in Aachen and worked there for just over a year after qualifying. When I left Germany, nursing seemed somewhat behind, compaired to England. Do nurses feel respected? How are relationships between nurses and doctors? Would be great to read your views.
