Nurse: Wanted in Isle of Man

  1. I have heard this news just yesterday. Great opportunity for those nurses who wouldnt want to wait around the end of retrogression.
    It was said that this island is in the British Isles. So I guess, they are covered by nmc..

    They have an independent government and make their own laws & tax rules & I don't think they are part of the NMC even - though I'm not 100% sure about that bit. I don't think the recruiting rules we have here in the UK at the moment apply to them because they are not actually part of the UK.

    Here's a link to their website http://www.isleofman.com/tourism/about/

    That's interesting because it doesn't belong to either the UK or the EU.

    Isle of Man is a crown holding its part of england but not the UK.

    They have their own deparment of health which provides goverment health care(public) and private provided care like nursing homes

    The Nursing license body is the NMC (nursing and midwifery council)and as a foreign trained nurse the NMC needs to look at your training and will require an adaption course, place their are limited, before granting your licence to practice.

    Also they may have to fill jobs from Isle of Man residents, UK or EEA nationals first so they may be working with UK immigration policy so nursing jobs may be near impossible for those outside those areas.

    my wife is a registered nurse. she has no experience yet as she is still reviewing for the nclex. however, we came across the isle of man and are interested with that place. any advise?

    Almost all foreign countries require the local license and at least two years of experience before they will consider the nurse for immigration purposes.

    Suggest that you contact them directly to find out their requirements.

    Some information about the Isle of Man is here http://www.isleofman.com/tourism/factfile/ - it is a country in its own right but is part of the British Isles and therefore for nursing issues, registration with the NMC is required to work there.
