I was wondering if I could get some insight into this situation.
I will be a newly minted NP in the US very soon. I am in a situation where I could possibly move to England. Does my licensure and certification (qualifications) transfer over smoothly to England from the US? I will not have any experience as an NP before I make this move. Is that an issue? Moving with no NP experience. Do they look at the RN experience or does it not matter?
What are some of the things I would have to do there to get certified to work there? Would I need to go back to school at all? Or resit my boards?
Also, are there differences in what NPs can do in the UK vs US? If so, what? Is the pay equivalent?
I would also like to mention that I only have a couple months of RN experience in the states (as I have been reading on these boards, that at least to work as an RN in the UK, you need 1 year of experience in the country you trained in), as I went straight through to my masters for the NP degree, I do not have this. Don't know if that would change my NP status at all in the UK. In the US it doesn't matter if you are looking for an NP job and not an RN job.
Please, any and all insight is appreciated! TIA
