    I am also planning to move to Germany in a year or two with my husband. I am a licensed RN with a bachelors degree. Doesn't seem to sound like i'll have any luck getting a job over there (?). What about continuing nursing education? I've heard something said about nurse researches. Does anyone know anything about that or anything else that might help me? I don't speak German either.

    You will need to be able to speak German although when I lived there several years ago they could speak English they much preferred to speak German. Not sure how you will get a work permit but may have trouble

    Everybody who wants to work as a nurse in Germany need to be fluent in German, exception only for people who are working for the US army or so.
    So start studying German to start with.
    Registration depends on in which "state" (Bundesland) are you gonna live, several goverment authorities might be involved.
    Acceptance of your nursing education will depend on the hours you've done (theory and practical) according to the german nursing law and european guidelines. Your education should have been at least for 3 years.

    Yup, the military hospitals can only absorb so many dependents.

    I don't think so, it wouldn't make sense, to be honest.

    In Germany nurses have had diffuculties in finding jobs for a couple of years. And you should consider that competences are much lower than in other countries.

    Any questions? I am German and might be able to help.

    Lizzy,

    I'm not aware of any schools in Germany that are doing this, there are schools where english is taught see Ulm or Heidelberg for instance, but not the nursing curriculum, you could try to contact the american base in Frankfurt, there's an american army hospital. But for a german nursing school you'll need to be fluent in german.
