You have to obtain a British nursing license first from the NMC (nursing and midwifery council). That's where you have to take the IELTS, unless you were trained somewhere in the EU. It can take quite a few months to get and it's a bit pokey as they advertise that you need 2000+ or so hours from your nursing clinicals which most American BSNs do not have in order to be eligible. Other nurses on here have reported that they have been able to obtain the license despite this, but accelerated BSNs and ADNs don't qualify...

moved to the international forum

tier 2 is the visa you come under but generally you need a uk employer

before you apply under tier 2 (general), you must have:

* a sponsor; and

* a valid certificate of sponsorship.
