    There are a few UK nurses around in the same position but I think it would need for two nurses to be in the same specialty to make the discussion thing work.
    Don't think it is necessary to be in the same speciality. As long as the person you have the discussion with has an NMC PIN and is honest and knows what they are looking for it should be OK.

    My discussion was with my confirmer who was my manager but it was fairly obvious from the work I could show that all she had to do was agree it.

    VKALA, you are a bit late to the party with this one, we debated it several months ago!

    I have been writing back and forth to the NMC about this and the replies I get are not consistent. It seems that the confirmer DOES have to be NMC registered, I have had conflicting answers but when I ask for clarification that is their final answer.

    When do you next go home? I plan on doing the Professional Discussion in a London pub at the next May Bank Holiday : )

    They expect the discussion to be between nurses working in the same field, although they can be in different countries. So you could discuss with a former coworker back home. Or go back and do a stint as agency and do it then.

    But offering bribes is going to get you into trouble, so just be careful.

    Hello Rob,
    I can help to be a con firmer,as I just renewed my license and I know how difficult it was for me to find somebody in Arizona!In one of thread here I have given my Skype ID.Also,remember that you need 5 reflective accounts,five feedback's and some 450 hrs of practice,study hours out of which some have to be participatory.Please check the NMC website and the requirements.

    Let's help eachother. We can discuss your 5 then mine and sign eachother off. I'm a British nurse living in America so it's a predicament a lot of overseas nurses are finding.

    Where in the US are you?
    I'm in IL and I think there are a few of us dotted around the US who are battling this new NMC requirement!

    Hi there;
    I am trying to find a UK nurse working in the USA who would be willing to discuss my reflections and help validate me so I can renew my UK NMC nursing license. I would be willing to help others in the same situation. You will need to have a UK NMC pin #

    I am in the same boat. I have lived in the USA since 1993 and have lost contact with all my old nursing Pals. I live and work in East Arkansas. Is there anyone who can help with my reflective discussion? I can Skype or WhatsApp.

    Thanks Guys
