Thank you for this.
So as I gather, the whole registration thing has two parts - ONP (done in a university) and supervised nursing course (in a hospital or nursing home). Now I have a secured place to do my supervised practice since I recently just got employed by this nursing home in London. So that means I'm yet to look for a university to do my ONP, is that right?
I haven't received my decision letter yet, but I assume that it will be similar to the ones my friends received - 6 months supervised practice and ONP, since we were all trained in the same country.
Thanks for your suggestion too. I heard that Bournemouth University doesn't do ONP on its own anymore. I think they incorporated it to their BSc course and one cannot just take the ONP on its own, same thing as in Anglia Ruskin University in Essex. I've done my research and the best choice I have at the moment is City University in London since the nursing home where I am going to do my supervised practice with is in London.
I'm quite confused with the visa situation though. Because the nursing home said that once I get my decision letter, they will assign me a certificate of sponsorship and apply a work permit for me.
But if I would need to do the ONP in a university, does that mean I need to apply a student visa as well?
I mean how can my new employer process a work permit for me when I am not a registered nurse yet?
Thanks for your time.
