    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

    Similar to other jobs in Germany, there are many factors that determine one’s salary – your workplace location, whether you’re working in the public or private sector, and your work arrangements with your employer. Nurses usually receive an average of €2800 monthly (before tax deduction).

    However, be prepared to contribute between 30% and 42% of your gross salary as tax and social contribution. In return, you get to enjoy benefits from the German government which includes unemployment support, pension, healthcare, and education for your family.

    As a nurse, it’s important that you master German as some of your patients, especially the elderly ones, are only able to converse in German. Most hospitals will require international nurses to have B2 level of German, but the more fluent you are, the better you will be in communicating with your peers and patients.
