BSc Nursing but no License

Elysiannn Elysiannn (New) New

Hello everybody,

I graduated from a BSc nursing program in 2013 and have been working at a private hospital for 14 months... The first 6 months was a probation period and i was promised a license to come with my next contract... I am 14 months in and on my second contract and i still havent received it. I was advised to visit the nursing council of the country i live in.. (Bahrain) Middle east and have done so but they just politely tell me to go away.. i filled in the forms and everything and it was all submitted 8 months ago... i really want to work in the UK.. i am from the philippines. Can anyone advise me on what to do? I have sent millions of emails out reaching for help but have always been told i need a license first... I want to register with the NMC (UK council) but i do not have a license... and by the look for things i will not get one! I am literally working like a slave... and i cant get out of it. I have spoken to my hospitals HR, Nursing Director and admin but they have no idea what the position is of my license..

Anything will help.

Thanks in advance

Check the NMC website but I believe you need a license from the country you trained in and any countries you have worked in. Also a suggestion is talk to a supervisor who works for the NMC and discuss the situation and see if they can advise anything

Thank you for your post silver dragon. I will do that. Any information is very helpful right now I am at a all time low.

Hi. I want to ask. What happened to NHRA? Did they issue a certificate for you for the NMC Application? I am currently working in Bahrain right now and I am in the middle of processing my NMC Application. The thing is, I need to submit NHRA CERTIFICATE, which I don't know how to acquire. If only you can help. :) Thanks!
