Requirements for Overseas Nurses

We only work with qualified nurses and care workers who are interested in jobs in the NHS or private healthcare industry in the UK. For nearly all jobs a good level of written and spoken English will be needed as well as a recognised nursing qualification and, ideally, practical nursing or care work experience. 

For nurses from the EU there are currently few restrictions on working in the UK. You will normally have to apply to have your nursing qualification recognised in the UK. This is a fairly straightforward process and we can help you with the paperwork and let you know what needs doing.

For nurses coming from outside of the EU it may be neccessary for your to take a competency test before you can work in the UK. We can provide information on these tests and what you should do to prepare. You will also need to meet the immigration requirements for your particular country, but again this is something we can assist with. 

You can find out more information about coming to work in the UK on the government's website and you can find more information about working as a nurse in the UK on the NMC website.
