Nursing is one of the most rewarding careers in the world and the world has seen how much we rely on nurses over the last 12 months. As a nurse you can make a real difference to others by giving care in people’s time of need. A career in nursing in the NHS offers you job security and the flexibility to work in numerous specialist areas, allowing you to determine your own career pathway. There has never been a better time for International Nursing staff to join the NHS and Xander Hendrix work with NHS Trusts across Northern Ireland and the UK, from Specialist Units to local General Hospitals.
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 (OET or IELTS). You will also need to take the CBT exam (Test of Competence – an exam consisting of 120 multiple choice questions) and finally the OSCE examination.
