Nursing in Germany

Why Choose Nursing in Germany?

Germany is currently experiencing a significant shortage of qualified medical staff, with hospitals and care homes facing considerable strain. The country’s nursing industry employs approximately 1 million people, but estimates suggest that by 2060, 3 million nurses will be needed due to the aging population. As of the end of 2015, there were 2.9 million individuals requiring care; this number is projected to increase to 4.1 million by 2030. Nursing positions are particularly hard to fill, with vacancies remaining open for an average of 171 days — the highest average among all professions. The demand for geriatric nurses is rising, with 11 percent currently coming from abroad.
