In Germany, the nurses are usually employed by the hospital and not directly by the patient this means that you will have a fixed number of patients to take care of depending on the position and work. However, some nurses are also required to travel to elderly people either in the elderly homes or in their homes living alone but not with children. The private nurses are very rare as they are usually very expensive and only employed by the rich.
