Hi there! I found this article with links within so you can follow these steps to get it completed. Good luck!
Nurses in Europe are educated very differently than here in the US. You will likely have to go to nursing school again, at least for the second year. I have heard of state nursing boards granting LPN licensure to foreign nurses but you have to submit all of your education for review. Nurses here in the US do a lot more than nurses in Germany. We are extremely autonomous and do IVs, ports, medication administration, G tubes, central line dressing changes, manage vents, etc.
Contact the state board of nursing in the state you want to work. They are more than glad to help.
