Road to become a RN in UK

Author : Fusco Browne Comment : 0

Getting a work opportunity as a nursing professional in UK is a dream for many out there. As a country, UK provides various challenging opportunities to the professionals along with favourable stances for rewards and quality life.

Just like many others, you too don’t fall for the tempting “staff nurse” job advertisements and rather make sure if you really qualify for the same. There is a vast difference between the position of a staff nurse and personal care worker and these should not be interlinked with each other. One may start practising for support worker or care worker position without any prior experience or qualifications, but this does not works in the case of a staff nurse.  Although in order to secure one of the positions, one has to meet certain rules and be eligible accordingly:

In order to practice as a nurse in the United Kingdom, you must register with the regulatory body, Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). When you apply, you must have been practising as a nurse or midwife for at least one year. If you have been qualified longer than this, you must have practised for at least 450 hours in the last 3 years. If you are from a non-EU country, you will also have to take the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) exam before starting the NMC application process. This exam is fairly easy if you are from an English speaking country.

The person applying for any of these jobs must learn to stay calm under any given pressure, caring, empathetic, patient, and most importantly, must be an excellent communicator. And yes, a clear criminal record is a must with no record of any major convictions. No doubt, even a minor offence can prevent you from taking up either of the two roles.
