    Have you even registered yet with the nursing board of either places? Also things are a bit tough in Ireland so finding someone willing to go work permit route may be hard

    The nursing board for the UK is the NMC .. And you have to have a lot of practise hours , I had to complete over 2300 , I did here that foreign nurses can get in with 1600? But am not sure , as for sponsorship , I have heard of foreign nurses getting sponsored in the UK as a whole ... The rules for Southern Ireland may be different as its not part of the UK

    But you still need to register with the Irish board of nursing and jobs are still difficult

    In the republic Nursing is still in a hiring freeze in ghe public sector, your chances are very small

    Are you a nursing graduate originating from the US? If so, there is a way you can work in Ireland on your American nursing license for one company at least.

    Hi, I think you should first apply to "an board altranais" ( Irish Nursing Board ).
    Fulfill the requirement before applying, they require a year experience, IELTS and so on.
    As far as job is concerned i don't know much about it but you can check this Nurse Jobs Ireland: Homepage|Nursing Jobs|Nurse Jobs|Nursing Recruitment website.
    Hope they will help you out, email them and ask your queries.
    I suppose this information helps. All the best.

    Hi, Even i am an interested to work in Ireland, it would be a great help if you would let me know about employer or any agency who is sponsoring you. Kindly share the experience.

    Hi Sinedenise, I am in a similar boat. I just graduated with a Nursing Degree from Portugal, although I am not an EU Citizen. The agency said that I don't have a chance to apply to UK without a passport, so I am looking towards Ireland to see the possibilities.

    Seems as though in general nursing is not as high demand right now.
