The UK’s Nursing and Midwifery Council or NMC has announced that nurses and midwives trained outside the EU will be allowed to work in the UK immediately after qualifying.
The breaking news is reported on the NMC’s website:
“Until today nurses and midwives from outside the EU must have worked for at least 12 months after qualifying before being able to apply to work in the UK. The change brings applicants from outside the EU into line with their EU counterparts. All those applying to work in the UK from outside the EU will still be required to pass the NMC’s stringent test to show they’re safe to work. They must also be able to show that they can communicate effectively in English.”
