Dedication and True Commitment Are
Excellent Qualities of Today's International Nurse
Nurses are a
critical part to our economy, in today’s society, many Trusts are importing
nurses from Europe and Asia. Nurses abroad are very enthusiastic at the
prospect of working for the NHS in the UK, and are embracing the whole
concept of a new adventure and life away from their home comforts.
When speaking with the nurses they all have in common a passion for nursing
and an eagerness to branch out into a new culture, with this, of course
comes more hard work on their part. Not only do they study a degree in
nursing and work hard to gain experience and recognition in public
and private hospitals, they are also required to pay to belong
to professional bodies such as the NMC
to authorise their practice as well as undertaking
language tests which can cost up to a month’s salary and a
minimum of 3 months additional study.
and caring nurses, not only make sure their professional practice is
up-to-date but make sure their written and spoken English are
above average. For International nurses from Asia a nurse
has to appear two to three times to score a 7 in each of
the four categories being, Reading, Writing, Listening
and Speaking. Each time they take an IELTS exam, a nurse puts in
3-6 months of preparation time, some take a sabbatical to prepare for this.
recently identified 7 Trusts that are embarking on recruiting nurses
with 2 years minimum experience. Although this raises the
bar slightly and excludes newly graduated nurses,
this also opens up the opportunity for those nurses who are
further afield in India and the Philippines, who
are specialist's and have accumulated
a wealth of experience.
