I am a MSN Family Nurse Practitioner currently working in Internal Medicine (office and hospital) and also urgent care. I have 10 years RN experience, 6 years NP.
I am moving (just waiting for details) at the beginning of 2011 to the Macclesfield area when my husband is transfered for his job. I assume i would be under a family visa at that point.
My debate...to work...or not to work. I will have a 4.5 year old son and 2.5 yo son at that point. I only work 2.5 days/week now. we'll be there for at least 2 years.
We JUST found out that this move is happening. I started reading through posts here and looking at the NMC website. I am amazed with the hoops! I joked that I needed to "learn English" (still wondering what a "gas hob" is? stove?). But then I saw that I DO have to take an English language competancy! =0
Then apply (once I have a company to sponsor a work visa for me) for a license- do I understand correctly that these are limited?
What are the chances of getting a license? job?
I work as a nurse practitioner. I examine, diagnose, and treat/prescribe meds and therapies. Do "Nurse Practitoners" function in the same manner there? Hoping someone will be able to help with information!
