Studying in Germany

Jhouv Jhouv (New) New

Hello everyone,

I am currently a pre-nursing student at a school in Michigan in my sophomore year. Because of some issues with classes it will be at least another year before I get into the nursing program. This definitely puts a hold on my future plans of getting married to my german fiancee and living with her in Berlin. So, I have started to look into nursing school in Germany. Unfortunately there are very few schools that offer a BSN. Although I have found one school that offers a BoN, not really sure if that is the same. What I am wondering is if anybody has information on german nursing programs, and if I go to school in Germany, what would I have to do if I want to work as an RN in the states?

Are you proficient in German as it will be a requirements. EU training is different that the US and consequence is that you will always have to meet the BON requirement for foreign trained.

There are a couple of German nurses that post occasionally in the International forum (found under the region tab above) so you may want to post a question in there re how the training is done in Germany and whether it covers hows in all areas both clinical and theory

I am starting to become fluent in german. I know in Berlin there are international hospitals so I wouldn't necessarily have to know the language to get a job. I will try my question in the international forum.
