    Hello everyone. I have been searching the internet for job openings in Germany for nurses and i came across this thread. I am helping a friend of mine to look for work in Germany, he practiced nursing for almost five years already including 1 year working overseas. Although he is not yet very fluent with German language, he is very much willing to learn. I hope anyone can share their thoughts on applying as a nurse in Germany! thank You and May God Bless you all!

    Germany is part of the EU. So, German nationals are hired first, EU citizens second.

    I have a friend who nurses in Germany. Pay's not great and it's the same old, same old. Short staffed, heavy workload...

    Oh that's why i can't see any post for jobs to Germany for nurses! Many thanks @Fiona59 for your info! I guess i have to try other country for work since it is really hard to find a decent work for nurses here in the Philippines. God Bless!

    Germany is a very different culture/regulations ...
    There are no advanced practice nurses in Germany and a lot of things are strictly regulated. I worked in Germany as a nurse for close to 10 years and I have never encountered nurse injectors. Things like botox and such are done by MDs as far as I know. Also, plastic surgery other than for medical reasons is not as popular in Germany as it is for example in the US....

    Nursing is not as highly regarded in Germany.

    You will take home much less in your pocket than in the US because of the complicated tax law and mandatory contribution to a variety of insurances you have to have and can not opt out.
    Standard of living overall is high - but cost of living are high as well.

    You have to speak fluently and write as well - you need to pass a test.
    EU citizen have priority for jobs.

    Hello Mona77,
    this may be a long shot since you haven't been online for so long. I am a German Nurse myself and I would have so many questions I'd like to ask you. So, if you see this message, please get in touch with me.
