Qualified Nurses from Outside the EU wishing to work in the UK, New Immigration Regulations from Oct 2014

From October 2014 nurses who have qualified outside of the EU will no longer need to be sponsored AND no longer need to do the overseas nursing program to work in the UK.

The new requirements are as below, and consist of two parts:

  • Computer-based multiple-choice examination and a practical objective structured clinical examination (OSCE).
  • Practical objective structured clinical examination (OSCE).

The computer-based multiple-choice examination will be accessible in many countries around the world including those where significant numbers of non-EU/EEA educated nurses and midwives are recruited to the UK. The practical exam (OSCE) will always be held in the UK, initially at a test centre at the University of Northampton. After an initial bedding-in period this will subsequently be broadened out to encompass more centres.

  • IELTS 7.0 (academic version) or above in all sections
  • Successful completion of a three-year (or equivalent) undergraduate education and training programme
  • 12 months post-registration practice experience
  • A self-declaration that they are of good health and good character
