Overseas Nurses - NMC Registration with CBT & OSCE Test, Tier 2 Visa (Work Permit):

For Overseas Nurses from outside of the EU, there is a simple 5 step process to practicing as a Nurse in the UK.

  • You must have the relevant nursing qualifications to practice as a nurse and have at least 1 years of experience (unless you have completed your nursing degree in the UK)

  • You must pass your academic IELTS exam with a score of at least 7.0 in each area (reading, writing, listening, and speaking) to demonstrate your English language competency. Click the following link for more information on IELTS

  • You must apply to the UK NMC (Nursing & Midwifery Council) submitting some basic information and take a CBT (Computer Based Test). Click here for more information about the NMC and Registration. 

  • Once passing the CBT you must submit all the required documentation (often certified and/or translated) to the NMC for review and checking. The NMC will issue you with a Decision letter once they are happy with all the documentation that you have provided.

  • Once you have your decision letter you can apply for the final part of NMC Registration which is the OSCE Test (Objective Structured Clinical Examination). However, this can only be taken at the University of Northampton in the UK.

The OSCE test is the trickiest part of NMC Registration and the section that most Overseas Nurses find the most difficult. More than 50% of all candidates fail on their first attempt. As professional recruiters, we are here to help. We recommend that we place you in a Senior Care Assistant or Supervised Nurse position first with one of our quality employers who will sponsor you so that you can get your Tier 2 visa. You’ll then do your OSCE test here in the UK whilst you are already working and have gained experience and assistance from your employer.

NMC Registration and the OSCE test need not be a headache – we will guide you through the process and following a successful interview, guarantee you a great position with a great employer anywhere in the UK.
