How to become a nurse in Germany!
There is an unbroken demand of foreign nurses to work in Germany. According to our forecast this will even increase. Foreign nurses and male nurses are expected to have excellent job opportunities in the upcoming years. It is therefore never too late to start to learn German and to prepare a work migration to Germany in order to work here as a nurse.
EU citizens do not need a visa. All other applicants need to apply for a visa. Before applying for a visa applicants should go through our CV- and application check and find an employer in Germany. Having an employer and a work contract are the basics before applying for a visa.
In all regions in Germany nurses are employed by hospitals, specialized homes for elderly, in mobile services taking care about sick and elderly persons, in private and public clinics, or doctor’s offices, as well as in several other specialized institutions.
Applicants from all countries can apply. There might be some restrictions due to local laws, international agreements, or other regulations for non-EU-citizens. However we consult during the application process to guarantee a fully legal and quick start of work in Germany.
All applicants from EU countries might directly work as nurse helpers in German companies, clinics, or health care institutions. Many of these employers offer qualification programs to help you to get a full-fledged nurse. In addition applicants from any EU country might start an apprenticeship as a nurse in Germany. If you are interested in one of these options please apply directly. For both ways German language skills on level B1 are required.
If you already have finished a nurse training abroad there might be the option to start as a nurse or nurse helper in Germany (depending on the question whether your foreign degree will be recognized in Germany). In order to get a recognition you must have studied nursing or you must have finished an apprenticeship in nursing abroad. If you only have work experience but no degree in nursing then you must go through an apprenticeship in nursing in Germany or start to work as a nurse helper.
During your work time as a nurse helper in Germany our clients (clinics in all Germany) will help you through a process for recognition of your foreign nurse training in Germany, often including additional training to reach the German standards. Be aware that a command of German on level B1/B2 is mandatory. If you do not speak German we cannot offer you any position.

A German clinic guides you through the recognition and qualification period
A German B1 is sufficient when applying
You get a salary from the first day
You improve your German on the spot
You improve your qualifications step by step under a mentoring system.
