I am hoping to move to the UK in a few years and practice nursing. I have previously lived and worked there as an RN, have dual citizenship, and was licensed there. What I am concerned with is my lack of recent acute care experience. I have been an RN for over 30 years, done CCU, ICU, ER. Then practiced as a midwife for 10 years. For the last 8 years, I've been practicing home care nursing.
As I have some time before my projected move from Canada to the UK, I am trying to improve my chances at getting a postion with a travel nursing agency and a contract in an acute care hospital. I live in a rural area, it's a long drive to the hospitals, not a lot of vacancies. I've been looking at taking some online ER/ICU courses, maybe taking a certification exam.
Looking for feedback from RN's with experience working in the UK or with travel agencies.
