Hi all. I'm an RN in the US, about a year and a half post-licensure/registration, toying with the idea of travelling to the UK in the next year or so. I'm a little confused by the different parts of the NMC Register; as a holder of a BSN in the US, is it true that I'm only eligible to apply for adult nursing? I know that NICU is one of the few nursing specialties still on the occupation shortage list (my 1.5 years of experience have all been in a tertiary level NICU), but would I be eligible to take a NICU position as an RNA? If not, what is this "12 month children's nursing course" the NMC mentions, and would I be able to enroll in that as a foreign nurse?
Thanks for any insight!
