You'll be fine, we've just had one of our health care assistants pass their OSCE and are now registered and she'd been a HCA for 5 years.

They've changed some of their regs, but I think its something like 5 years is the maximum gap but you have to prove that you have had some sort of nursing employment in that time. I would check their website just to be sure. I have a friend who was licensed in the UK and we were in Australia together for a year working as nurses and they got super picky about her renewing her license when she came back (I've never worked in the UK as a nurse myself - LONG STORY), but I know there are a lot of hoops to jump through. Good luck.

I think it would be easy to explain, as as long as you have worked as an actual nurse in the last few years. Its such a pain getting into the UK. Have you considered applying to work in another country? Australia is pretty straight forward. I know for a fact that let you get a license there with a 5 year maximum gap. There's some paperwork, but I got my license in 6 months and then I applied for a working holiday visa (if you're under 30).
