Help I need Info

  1. Hi to all,

    I am very new to this forum, but I have a question about nursing outside the USA.
    Does anyone know what I need to do, to be able to work as a Nurse in Germany and where I can find an agency, who sends me overthere (sesonal)?

    I would be very thankfull for your help and suggestions.

    I would think that if you wanted to work in German hospitals, you'd have to speak some pretty good German, and I think you'd have to have a German nursing license. If that required a written exam, we're back to having not just pretty good German but outstanding command of the language.

    If you are interested in working as a civilian American in American hospitals, you might check into civil service. I know the military cannot get enough nurses--you could check into civil service and not run the risk of going to the Middle East. I do think you need a BSN to work for the government (at least you do in the military and VA hospitals).

    Don't know if this helped, but at least it bumped it back to the top of the list!

    Good luck!
