hi, i am going to graduate in a few weeks as an RN, having completed my 3.5 year course in bachelor science/general nursing.
i need some advise: i want to work in the UK. i am going to start my grad program in mental health in august in australia.
can i work in the UK as a mental health nurse, considering my education, and 6 months experience at an acute psych hospital.
i have worked with dementia patients as a nursing assistant/carer for the past 3 years also.
will the nursing board take this into consideration? as it states that you must have 12 months experience? or do i have no chance?
and are there graduate programs in the UK within mental health that i could apply for?
