How do I find an apartment in Germany?

Your future employer will find your first apartment. This is usually either an apartment in the hospital residence or another apartment near the hospital. Often you will live there together with other candidates or German nurses in a shared apartment. You will have to pay the rent, utilities and deposit from your German salary. You are usually allowed to stay in this apartment until your Recognition as a nurse is finished. After that you have to look for an apartment yourself. If you find your own apartment earlier, you may of course move earlier.
