    Varda, I don't know about exchange programmes, but I seem to remember hearing that South Bank University did clinical placements at St Thomas'.

    Varda, I would suggest contacting universities in the areas you want to live and discuss with them the possibility of an exchange

    Hi,

    I'm a nursing student just finishing up my 1st year. I've managed to land a bank HCA job at a private hospital as the trust I train with doesn't take on students until their 2nd year. I'm finding juggling uni and my personal life really hard but I'm working hard to get through the training. Can't believe the 1st year is almost over!!

    For anyone just about to start their training, know that there will be lots of ups and downs. You'll feel like quiting at least once or twice a week, it's totally normal. The time will go quickly, just focus on the tasks at hand (there is so much of it) and don't worry about tomorrow's challenges until tomorrow.

    Best of luck to everyone training. You're doing a better job than you realise.

    Take care

    Thank you, Silverdragon and MandaAnda. Aparently all I have to do is give the name of the uni/school to the international office of my uni, and they'll look into everything for me. I'm tempted to apply for King's College's Florence Nightingale school of nursing, but it's almost certain that they get the most requests from all over europe.. May be a bit hard.

    I also hear somewhere that british universities were accepting only professor mobility programs, and not student mobility programs (such as Erasmus, which is the european university students mobility program). I hope that's not the case.

    The alternative is going to Belgium, but my knowledge of french is quite dire (je ne parle pas franais is about the only thing I can say anymore ) and I'd probably have to learn flemmish as well!

    In any case, I'll cross my fingers and hope for the best.

    Cambridge might be good as well, if you look into big hospitals/colleges.

    There are plenty of good universities in the UK and I went to Huddersfield for a couple courses that seemed OK and I know Leeds are attached to some excellent hospitals like St James

    Do I take it you are not practicing in the UK at the moment. If not you need to look in the international forum there is a great deal if information in there for overseas nurses.

    If you are already a RN then I think you will find it hard to enrol as a nursing student plus it is very hard to get on nursing courses if not already a EU/UK citizen. Even if you did your training it would be expected that you would return home and work once you have completed it.

    Also you would have to meet the job occupation list which you would not meet unless you gain experience in the following as per the Job occupation short-list

    ONLY the following jobs in this occupation code:
    *Specialist nurse working in operating theatres
    *Operating department practitioner
    *Specialist nurse working in neonatal intensive care units

    When you come over on a student visa it is expected that you return home not stay. Unemployment is still a high issue in the UK so any UK employer has to show that they can not employ a UK or EU citizen before the rest of the world

    Even if you can get a place on a nursing course in the UK which is extremely unlikely as an overseas national, it is still very unlikely you'll be able to get a work visa at the end of it. Even though you will have trained in the UK you will still be a foreign national and as such will have to work in a shortage occupation to be eligible for a work visa, as a newly qualified nurse you will not fit into this category.

    I just wanted to say hi. I am in my 2nd year of my BSN at the University of the West of Scotland. How are you ladies and gents finding your course?

    I have to admit that the drug calculations are not my strong point, we have to sit exams on this every year and we must get 100%, has anyone else had the same experience?

    Take care.
