I am finishing school as a Nurse Practitioner and am curious about the healthcare in Lisbon. What is the job market like for Nurse Practitioners?
Unfortunately, the health industry in Portugal is heavily regulated. To practice, you'll need to be registered at Ordem dos Infermeiros (http://www.ordemenfermeiros.pt/english/Paginas/default.aspx). I'm sure they'll give you more and better information than whatever we can provide here.
It's flooded, full of unpaid extended hours (pretty much everyday, it's part of our culture, work extra hours for no return).
