    Yeah... please help us! I am also interested in finding a nursing job in Italy... My american dreams are getting hazy now... But I hope retrogression will be lifted as soon as possible...
    Are you fluent in Italian? I would suggest a search as there are a few posts explaining what to do and I posted a link this last few days on the Italian board of nursing. Also with EU requirements of Italy EU before rest of the world you may find it hard to find employer willing to process work permit

    It is no longer going to be as easy as you think to work in Italy. To start with, you must be completely fluent in Italian and pass their language exams, and also pass their written nursing license exam. Then you have the issue of trying to get a visa to work there, unless you have significant work experience in an area that they need help in, chances will be quite slim if you are not at least a citizen of the European Union.

    As far as the retrogression lifting anytime soon, do not expect it. And even if it lifts somewhat, there is still a limit on the number from one country per year and that number is under 10,000 for your country and many more applicants than there are visas.

    and that will really make a difficult move for one. Never had come up to my mind of working in EU country, though my parents are permanent residents of Spain.

    Any of the European Union countries are difficult at this time as most have hiring freezes or something similar.

    Permanent residency status of one's parents does not make it any easier for you, as they cannot petition you with that status either.

    I'm an EU citizen so no problem with immigration. Can somebody tell me if they recognize US education in Italy for example. I'll have an associate degree, do they recognize that or they require Bachelor's degree for nursing. Language is not a problem also, I'm fluent in German and I have time to learn another one so ... :P any info would be helpful

    Usually for the EU the requirement is over 3 years training as it must match the same as the country applying to. The only way really to find out is by applying and seeing what they say
