I am halfway through nursing school (RN) in St. Louis Missouri. My husband is possibly getting a job transfer to England. I am trying to get advice about whether I should stay in the US until I graduate, (and have two households for almost a year) or transfer to a nursing program in England.
I do not know much about UK nursing. I understand England has a national health care system. How do nurses get certification when they graduate? Do they take exams? (In the US, the tests are called state boards) Do you have to be hired by the government in England before you attend nursing school? I know these questions my seem dumb, but I honestly never had to wonder about things like this before.
I looked on the NMC website and all it really gives advice about is if you are ESL. I am also wondering if the nursing colleges will take my college credit. I really don't want to start over!
Thanks for any information or advice anyone can give me!
