    I have been considering looking into international nursing after I complete my master's degree to become a family nurse practitioner in 2014. I finished an accelerated program at the University of Pennsylvania in 2010 and now work as a BSN, RN on an adult general medicine unit at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (liver failure, pulmonary failure, renal failure, pre-transplant). Would it still be impossible for me to register with the NMC (given that I attended an accelerated program) even after several years as a nurse and an advanced degree? I understand that education is important, especially if you are a new graduate, but do they weigh education as heavily for experienced nurses? The accelerated program I attended was 18 months but we completed the same number of clinical and theory hours as the normal undergraduate population. I would love to work at King's College Hospital as they have a very good liver treatment department, but I suppose that's ridiculous given what I've read. Thank you.
    This is something that you really need to ask the NMC

    Thanks for the informative article. Does anyone know if after completing the overseas nurses program and given a PIN by the NMC, would our RN status be considered "permanent"? Or is there any kind of probationary period involved. The reason I ask is, after receiving licensure in the UK, would a nurse who received licensure outside the EU be then entitled to apply for licensure in other EU countries?
    Any responses would be helpful, Thanks.

    Hi! Can someone pls help me because I have an employer from UK and I need to know if this is real. He said he will process my visa and work permit in UK and from what I understand I need to pay for the work permit first so I can have my visa. Is that true? The 400 pounds work permit fee is very big for me, I don't want to waste money for that if it's fake.

    This is his message:
    "Listen now, on your visa application forms they required your working permit number.Mallinson will process your visa and working permit same time together.British Labour Department will approve your working permit first before issue visa.

    I am your employer and i am the one who will guide you on how to procure your documents to avoid any problem.You will follow all my instruction if you are willing to work for me.I have told you all the procedures and you must comply to ensure you have all your documents on time.You are not in England and you haven't travel to Europe or England.This is England procedures.You have to secure working permit registration number first before they will approve your visa.

    Hope you understand?"
    Hi,
    I don't know if this is real or not but he doesn't sound real to me. Contact the Embassy on your own and find out for yourself.

    Hi there, there are some universities that offer courses to international students, you'd need to look at their websites to find out what type of courses they are

    Hi Sharrie,

    I am a Registered Nurse in the Philippines with 7 months nursing experience. Obviously, I did not satisfy the 12 months criteria. Is it possible that the NMC will have you take courses in lieu of lack of nursing experience? thank you and hope to hear from you

    Hi Louise, the NMC requires 12 months experience, I don't think they will waive this

    I'm a Italian nurse and I would like to work in England. Now I'm doing a master's degree of management of skin lesions at my university in Rome, and I want to become a wound care nurse. I would ask you if the master is valid all around Europe.


    There is one who could help me?

    Thanks very much for the attention
