US RN wanting to work in Vicenza, Italy
- 0Mar 25, '13 by dieselpumaHi everyone,
I'm new to the forum and after much web searching, figured this would be the best way to find out information.
I'm a US citizen and want to try to find work as an RN in Vicenza, Italy. My fiance is PCS-ing there and while we are planning to marry, we don't want to rush anything because he is moving. Is there anyone who has had experience with going from US to Italy as an RN on post?

You will not be sponsored and really without status in a non-English speaking country.
I would imagine you will need to be fluent in Italian both spoken and written in order to work. Plus, what will your visa status be?
