    hello floridamom!!
    this is very interesting, i believe i can help you and you can help me!! i am going to be moving to germany to be with my man but i live here in the states and i am a rn!! what you have to do is call the board of nursing in florida and they will let you know what exactly you need to do but i know for a fact that germany will have to send some paperwork to the board of nursing in florida for a $15 fee and then i think you'll have to take the nclex again for the state of florida. so, what will i have to do to get a nursing job in germany???

    Dear 5 Cats,

    thank you for your replay. I will take a look at this web site. (cgfns.org.)

    Hi Floridamom

    I am a student nurse in Germany and will be graduating in 2011.
    My wish is to move to the states and work there, but i dont know what exactly i need to be able to work there.
    Should i need to get all my paper work translated in English?
    How do the americans want OUR(german) Zeugniss to look like?(cause i have to talk to my principal and ask him if he can arrange the Zeugniss process for me)

    Please advice me.

    PS. I just got engaged(wedding date is set) to my long time boyfriend who is an american and i hope i wont have any problems with the working permit or Visa!

    vielen Dank

    Congrats on getting engaged, getting married will get you a immigrant visa

    Regarding meeting RN requirements you will need to check the state board of nursing out for the state you plan on living and working and see what their requirements are for foreign trained nurse. You can find links to state boards of nursing at the bottom of the page. You will need transcripts breaking down your training into clinical hours and theory hours and what speciality main ones being General adult, Mental Health, Paeds and Obstetrics

    Transcripts have to come from the school of nursing where you are doing your training. Texas requires CES from CGFNS and appears that Tennessee requires CGFNS exam

    Suggest a read on CGFNS International re CES and Certification exam
