Working in England

  1. Can anyone direct to an agency, etc, that can help me find work in England. Also, what's the job market like on the other side of the pond?

    Things are really changing here in the UK at the moment and there has been a few threads like this with RN wanting to work in the UK. Jobs are really on the downward turn with lots of hospitals making nurses redundant. Also an issue with immigration as you are no longer classed as fast tracked and rules laid down to employers and how they employ nurses, also NMC have recently changed their requirements. Try these links

    www.nmc-uk.org overseas

    for jobs try www.nursingtimes.net

    Good luck and try searching for some of the other threads there may be some other links for you to have a look at

    Unless you already have a UK pin number (equivalent to a license number) no agency would even look at you at the moment. As SD said nursing is no longer a schedule "A" job so you won't get a work permit either. Suggest that if you really want to work abroad you look to Australia, New Zealand or Canada!

    And if you have a two year degree from the US, it will not qualify for licensure there as well.
