Thank you for the reply. What will they ask you to do if you tested positive for hepatitis b?

You'll have an additional test for hep b which is the viral load and you'll be referred to infectious doctor. They will check if your viral load is low and safe to practise as a nurse.

Hello! How about for nurses with chronic hepa b applying for a job in Germany? I am currently waiting for my B2 pflege results. The agency already requested me to do medical exam.

If you’re hepatitis b positive what are the duties or work that you can only do as a nurse?

Hi! I hope you are doing well there. For the additional test, did you do the testing here (the viral load) in Ph or in the UK? and the referral to the infectious doctor, is that in the Ph? Thank you very much.

Hello. I am a Philippines registered nurse. I recently find out that I am hepa B positive. I really want to work abroad, especially in UK. Or if there are countries who accepts hepa B nurses. I would like to ask if what are the requirements to help me go to UK with me being hepa b positive. Thank you so much. I am the breadwinner in the family, I badly want to help my family. 😭😭
