I'm very interested in Oncology, plastic surgery, or pediatrics. How would I go about doing this for the UK? Do i need some kind of liscense?
    Hi. You would have to be registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. Start by downloading an application form from their website. that's how I've done it anyway. you would have to complete an adaptation training, usually lasts 3-6 months in a regsitered hospital or trust. The NMC will give you the lists of all these hospitals.

    Good luck!
