Important Update on Nursing Job Vacancies in UK and Ireland

UK and Ireland are recruiting nurses NOW and offering work permits and working visas which can lead to permanent residence and an EU passport.

Earlier this week I informed you that UK Tier 2 Work Permits and Irish work permits are available now for non-EU trained nurses living in the UK or overseas. This could include qualified nurses from any country as long as they meet the UK NMC (Nursing and Midwifery Council) or the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI) requirements - experience, English language.

Hospitals and Nursing Homes are paying generous salaries and allowances to Nurses, as they desperately need staff. UK hospital salaries start at around £25,000 pa and Nursing Homes pay up to £30,000 pa.

Irish Nursing Homes are offering up to 18 Euros per hour once you are fully qualified to work as a nurse in Ireland, which is a member of the European Union and not to be confused with Northern Ireland which is part of the UK.

In order for a non-EU trained nurse to work as a nurse in the UK, you must achieve a minimum IELTS score of 7.00 in all bands and pass the NMC Part 1 online test. Whilst this is proving difficult for some candidates, the system is actually more straightforward than the old 0NP adaptation programme it replaced. 

My tip is to prepare for the test like you would for any other exam. Read IELTS study guides or attend classes, as this is not an easy English test. There is no point in applying or sending a CV to me for a UK nursing job unless you have scored 7.00 in ALL bands.

However, the Irish NMBI system is less stringent and whilst you need an overall IELTS band score of 7, you can still qualify with a lower score in some areas.

Full details of IELTS Academic - minimum scores for working as a nurse trained outside the EU/EEA in Ireland.
Listening  6.5
Reading   6.5
Writing    7.0
Speaking 7.0

Overall   7.0 

Unlike the UK, which changed its rules on 19 January 2016, Ireland has NO English language requirement for EU/EEA nurses or nurses who trained and qualified in the EU/EEA. 

The UK now requires IELTS 7.00 for EU nurses, which appears to conflict with European free movement treaties.

The Republic of Ireland does not have the same restrictions on working for Croatian citizens, as imposed in the UK.

This is a window of opportunity for nurses who want to work in the UK or Ireland - and it will not stay open for long.

I have received hundreds of emails from nurses all over the world asking about the process for working in the UK.  

In case you missed it, here’s a summary of what to do if you are a non-EU nurses and want to work in the UK as a qualified registered nurse without the need to study here for a nursing degree:

  1. You must be a registered nurse in your own country (surprising how many enquiries I receive from non-nurses or care workers who cannot qualify for a UK work permit).
  2. You must have 3 years plus of pre-registration training and practice.
  3. You must obtain an overall band score of 7.00 or more - in all subjects - on an IELTS English exam (no exceptions). 
  4. You should register online with the NMC
  5. Pass the first stage online test (CBT).
  6. Assuming you pass the test, you will need to get through a UK-based assessment - Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) before you can be licensed by the NMC to practice as a nurse.
  7. You need to find an employer to sponsor your work permit and UK visa.

NMC fees for the 4 stage application process:

Application for nursing/midwifery £140
Part 1 test of competence (CBT) £130
Part 2 test of competence (OSCE) £992
Admission onto our register £153
Total £1415

Some employers may pay for or advance a loan to cover part or all of the above costs.

For full details, check the NMC website and see if you will qualify for UK registration. 

I can find a SPONSORING EMPLOYER AND JOB for you in the UK - and help you get a work permit - if you have IELTS 7.00 and preferrably have started the NMC process. If you are a nurse and want to work in the UK. email your CV and IELTS results.

Ireland are also recruiting nurses and offering work permits and unlike the UK there are NO English language test for EU trained nurses.

Do you really a need to migrate?

It has long been assumed that people in poorer countries must emigrate to richer countries to succeed and earn a living for their family.  However, this is no longer be the first choice for everyone. There has been a substantial economic shift during the past decade helped on by the technological and information revolutions. 

Millions of people are now choosing to work from home and avoid the pain of leaving their families behind for employment thousands of miles away. Major outsourcing platforms like and Fivver offer anyone with a laptop and an internet connection the chance to earn a living working from the comfort of their own home anywhere in the world. 

We can also trade stocks and shares or foreign exchange (FOREX) using inexpensive real-time technology that would have previously only been available to large institutions.

Students can also earn legitimate degrees from major universities online at a fraction of the cost of travelling abroad.

Making money with home-based businesses like Affiliate Marketing - selling other people's products for a commission - now offers huge opportunities in the home-based business economy and I believe it is only just getting started. 

Companies like Amazon and Ebay offer affiliate marketing programs, albeit for small commissions meaning you have to sell a lot of products to make serious money. With some schemes, you will need quite a bit of technical knowledge to set up your own websites, systems and marketing campaigns.

More and more people are looking to ditch the daily grind of long commute, doing a job they hate and spending half their lives trading their time for money and working to make someone else rich.

Replacing your salary from a job is easier said than done, right? Well, maybe. I recently came across a company which offers stay-at-home workers who want to escape the rat race the opportunity to earn affiliate commission without the need to set up websites or possess any technical knowledge. The company trains their students online through a structured series of modules and webinars as well as live support and mentoring.

The initial training, reports and information on how to escape the 9-5 life, join the new rich and live the laptop lifestyle is downloadable and totally free. Check it out, click here.
