3.What is a Band and why are there different numbers?

Every year, the NHS pay scales are reviewed. The scales are uniform for every NHS organization throughout the UK.

Can I register in the UK and apply for a job with WOE?

To be eligible for registration as an overseas nurse in the UK, you’ll need a three-year Nursing degree, plus ideally one year’s experience working as a nurse.

2.What is the recruitment process like?

Any international nurses wishing to start a career in the UK will go through the following:

  • Take the IELTS UKVI Academic and achieve a pass level of 7 (NMC now accept 6.5 in writing) OR take the OET and pass with grade B
  • Complete a Skype interview with an NHS Trust hospital
  • Receive an offer letter from the hospital following a successful interview
  • Start your registration with the NMC and arrange to take the CBT (Computer Based Test)

  • Arrive in the UK and begin working in the NHS as a Band 3 or4 nurse

4.What is the Computer Based Test(CBT)?

You can take the CBT at any time after you have your IELTS or OET, most nurses choose to do it immediately after this stage or after they receive a job offer from a NHS Trust. The test is made up of multiple-choice questions and is based on theoretical practice-based knowledge. You can take this test in at a Pearson Vue Centre in your own home country.

5.What is the OSCE Test?

OSCE stands for Objective Structured Clinical Examination and acts as the second part of your assessment for registration as an overseas nurse. It’s a practical test, which involves acting out scenarios that nurses are likely to experience during care. You’ll book the OSCE when you arrive in the UK and take the test at either the University of Northampton, Oxford Brookes University, or the University of Ulster. To arrange your OSCE, you’ll need to contact either of these universities however this is usually done by your new employer who typically shall support you through the entire process including making any travel arrangements.

Your employer will want to guide and support you in registering with the NMC and will, therefore, provide a training period of a few weeks before you sit the OSCE. The NHS Trust will pay for you to sit the test 2-3 times, depending on which Trust you are joining.

7.Do I need a visa to work in the UK?

Unless you are an EU National, you will need a visa or work permit to work in the UK. When applying for an NHS nursing job, the Trust can offer sponsorship to obtain a Tier 2 visa. After passing the CBT, you’ll be issued with a Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS), which you’ll need for applying for your visa. Depending on which Trust you are joining, they may cover the cost of the visa for you in full or in part.

8.Can I bring my family to the UK with me?

Yes, but their accommodation and visas will depend on which Trust you are joining. Some Trusts will provide accommodation for your family but will not cover visa costs for them. However, other Trusts will not provide accommodation or visas for family members at all. You should speak with your dedicated IM-HR Project Manager to find out what package the Trust offers.

We strongly recommend not bringing your family over to the UK until you have successfully passed the OSCE.
