    Cara mia,

    I will try to make a Italian nursing path accreditation for you , you could fallow or not but that it’s at this moment what I know about. If somebody else could add more at or come with more details is much than welcome.

    In Italia right now is a shortage of nurses. To work like nurse in Italy you need “RICONOSCIMENTO DI TITOLO PROFESSIONALE” and a job contract .

    “RICONOSCIMENTO DI TITOLO PROFESSIONALE” could be obtain from :

    Ministero della Salute
    Direzione Generale delle Risorse Umane e delle Professioni Sanitarie,
    Piazzale dell’Industria, 20- 00144 Roma Italy.


    Link: http://www.ministerosalute.it/

    Riconoscimento di titolo professionale has two options: for UE citizen and for nonUE citizen.
    As much as I read about you, right now you are NOW… ONLY US citizen but you could be soon UE citizen (after your parents..right??)
    My advice, before start processing, decide your self in what quality you want to apply for riconoscimento (like non UE-means only American citizen or like UE citizen)
    Ask questions before to be decided, search and look over Ministero della Salute web site, give them a phone call, try to decide your self what is best for you.
    Or talk with a lawyer!

    Here you have all documents that you need to be filled and send to Ministero della Salute for “Riconoscimento di titolo professionale” (look at for nonUE countries if you apply like American)

    The board of nursing in Italy is: http://www.ipasvi.it/ You could look over an call or email them also.
    Talk with Ambasciata d’Italia Cancelaria Consolare from closed to you, they know also how to guide you.

    Hope that I could help you a little bit. And please hugs and kiss all beautiful Italian ragazze and sing for me a song in gondola at Venice, looooooool. Hugs from Zuzi

    I disagree,I am Italian,I live in England and I am studying nursing here in England.Italians do speak English and they do teach English in our schools in Italy and it is not true that Italians do not want to learn English. All of my friends back in Italy speak English and some have moved to live in USA,so it all depends where you live in Italy.
    Never judge the all country,for the few you have met.
    We do not have a hard time learning English,I really do not understand some of the comments,being Italian and living in England I find those comments quite negative.

    The post is quite old,but I thought to add my comment anyway.

    I`m a Brazilian Nurse (south american) and I`ve been in process for working in Italy.
    The process is about one year and is more easy than USA. I`ve learned Italian faster and I`ll do one Italian course for nurses in my country with one Italian corporation. My process for USA is very slow and I want answers quickly.

    I'm actually still here in the States. I leave for Sicily in August and have found work at a Transplant Hospital there that's affiliated with UPMC in Pittsburg, PA (That's what I do here in NYC). I'm very excited, nervous, etc!
