    Nursing Jobs in Aberdeenshire Scotland

    Ps ARI are offering £8000 relocation fees to work there , the reason why they are short staffed is the cost of living , Aberdeen is an oil industry town , it is expensive to live there, i would not worry , once you get your licence transferred , you will get a job, i was there in April as a relative was having an op and they tried to get me to work there once they found out i was a nurse , i live in another area of Scotland.

    Yeah thats the latest thing that has been brought into force , it starts 2016 and we need 5 reflective study from different sources for revalidation of our licence.

    Nurses in the UK cannot practice without a licence and that gets renewed yearly to which you have to make the requirements of working actively as a nurse for 450 hrs minimum under the NMC and have continuing education , you also have to have your ILS and soon there will be a portfolio to have as well of reflective study.

    Moving to USA advice!!

    Did you do a foundation year? If you did you may qualify! US are generalist trained however the clinical hours needed are not as much as the UK . I am an adult nurse and did peads , maternity (OBYN and GYN ) and mental health in my foundation year and had more than double , sometimes triple of what was required , however if it was a straight route children's nurse with no foundation year you will find this hard, you will have to do top up classes in a university over there , i believe these are hard to get!

    American nurse looking abroad

    In all honesty I think its terrible that they make english speaking countries sit this ielts test, however, how hard can it be if your first language is english?. I think its stupid to test this, but i dont think it would block a person from traveling to another country to work, i can imagine it would be annoying though. Those in other countries which english is not their 1st language pass this test in abundance. I dont know the ins and outs of this test nor what it entails , but I do know nurses from the UK that have moved to Australia and Canada. They must of been tested too?

    Thats what i said , it appears that in nursing it isn't but doctors under the GMC are exempt! Its not fair! And i agree with you!

    I checked it online and it appears that ielts exempt does not apply in nursing in the uk ! I'm shocked! Thats just ludicrious!

    I dont believe the UK requires ielts for english speaking, especially not americans, i have met quite a lot of american nurses here in the UK. but Australia does require IELTS for english speakers, which is crazy! Also you could try the Republic of Ireland. I believe they take nurses outwith the EU. Good luck :)

    Anyone here pay $200 dollars still passed?

    Sorry thats what i meant by a grey zone that the computer cannot determine with 95% cert a pass nor can it determine a fail , i call that a grey zone in my head

    Anyone here pay $200 dollars still passed?

    Thats true and only 17% in there 2nd attempt , guess i was fortunate :) In the uk we are taught more on the ward than in the classroom and whats in theory and in practice can be very different. However i loved learning the american way of nursing. I really enjoyed it. On my first attempt i never took kaplan or hurst and i failed but after reading and intensely studying for 8 weeks i passed :)

    Anyone here pay $200 dollars still passed?

    I got at least the last 2 right that i can remember and the computer shut off at 106 or around about , they were very difficult questions, i did pass, i think everyone gets a minimum of 75 in that instant if the computer shut of after 75 and they got the last question wrong it would not indicate a fail! I believe if If you go above 75 q the computer has put you in the grey zone? You have not passed but you have not failed either , but if you continue to get questions right , the next question gets harder and you will come out of the grey zone and into the pass zone. If you go all the way to 265 the computer will look at the last 60 q and decide from that. There is also test questions that dont count so i imagine if you got them it is in the initial 75 q thats what i was led to think
