What Degrees are there for Nursing in Germany?

In Germany most of the students have to go through an apprenticeship ( also known as Ausbildung ) in a German hospital.  Before you apply for an apprenticeship at a hospital, you should have at least a B2 level in German proficiency as you would need to be  able to interact with your patients in German.

At the end of the program, you are required to pass a state examination to successfully conclude your training. Upon the completion of apprenticeship, you will be able to work at hospitals, nursing homes, outpatient care facilities, health insurance companies and so on. 

Cost of Studying Nursing

It is good to note that this figure should be used only as a guide as factors like the city that you are living in and your lifestyle choices will also determine your monthly expenditures.

The students are able to immediately start earning when you begin your apprenticeship in Germany.
