    things for overseas nurses are changing in the UK would suggest you look at the nmc website and read the overseas section

    www.nmc-uk.org

    there are now requirements before you can actually nurse in the UK if from a non european country

    best of luck

    There are no safe and speedy ways for working in the UK, just like there aren't any for working in the US.

    To ensure your application does not get slowed up, check, check and re-check you have completed all forms, if you are unsure what is required then ring for clarification or check guidance notes. Get someone else to check over your application for you too before you send it. As Suzanne says there are no short cuts - only follow what the Nursing and Midwifery Council ask of you and keep asking questions on this board.

    Good luck!

    Curious as to the Difference between EN and RN?
    Would that be equivalent to the US's LVN/LPN and RN?

    EN is Enrolled Nurse and it is the equivalent of the LPN.

    In the UK we don't train ENs any more, and many ENs have undertaken conversion courses to become RNs.

    We have no EN's that I know of in London anymore, they have to downgrade to healthcare assistant,

    One of the above posters from Germany was just asking what the EN meant and what is was equivalent to.

    No Way should they be downgraded to healthcare assistant.... :angryfire the training is not the same... it is an insult as ENs are a recognised training by the NMC you may know them as RN level 2 many may have done the conversion course but no way would have been downgraded
