Nursing is one of the most rewarding jobs in the UK. On an emotional level, you make a difference to others by giving care to others in their time of need. The world needs more people who are willing to do that. A career in Nursing in the NHS also offers you job security and the flexibility to work in numerous specialist areas. You have the power to choose your own career pathway. With over 34,000 Nursing vacancies throughout the UK, there has never been a better time for International Nursing staff to join the NHS and we are here to help.  BDI Resourcing work with NHS Trusts throughout the UK from busy District General Hospitals to large Specialist centres. 

What is required to be a Nurse in the UK?

Nursing in the UK is regulated by the NMC. To be eligible for registration with the NMC you will need to pass an English language examination (Either OET or IELTS).  You will also need to take the CBT exam (Test of Competence Part 1 exam consisting of 120 multiple choice questions in a 4 hour exam) and finally the OSCE examination. Applicants must have completed a programme at post-secondary level leading to registration as a general nurse. The programme should be three years in length (or equivalent) and contain a minimum of 500 hours of clinical practice which must be evidenced by a transcript of training from the applicant’s higher education institution.
