working in germany

The field of nursing is a regulated profession in Germany, so that recognition is mandatory for practicing the profession as a nurse (cf. §1 PflBG). Through the preparation by means of adaptation qualification, you will be prepared for this, so that after successfully passing the exam, the recognition at the Bavarian State Office for Nursing can take place. Only then are you allowed to work as a fully-fledged nursing professional in Germany – before that, only employment as a nursing assistant is legally possible.
