You need to have a minimum of a GNM plus 1 year of clinical work experience and be a RN.
Once you have reached UK and gained employment you will have to undertake OSCE (Organized Structured Clinical Examination).
The passing score for OET is Grade B for all 4 sub tests (modules).
PTE scores are not recognized as an eligibility factor for a job in UK. IELTS and OET scores are recognized.
You need to have:
Yes, CoS and Offer letter are two different things: CoS is a Sponsorship Certificate which will be issued to you by your employer. It will represent that the employer wants you to work with them. Offer letter is given by your employer as well but it contains the joining details and other facilities which will be provided to you once you accept the offer letter and start working for them. NOTE: One can apply for the CoS after one has signed their Offer letter.
Your interview will be conducted via Skype.
The CBT can be taken in India in an authorized center. However, OSCE will be conducted in UK.
In case your registration has lapsed you will need to apply for readmission. The process of readmission may take several weeks. Meanwhile you are not allowed to work as a nurse, midwife or a nursing associate.
A Tier 2 (Work) visa will be issued to you as you will be going to UK as a working professional.
Yes, but if you wish to leave your employer you have to pay back the money which has been invested in you by the NHS Trust. On the other hand, it is also at the employer’s discretion.
They can apply as your dependents provided they meet the relationship, maintenance and other relevant requirements. They do not need an IELTS/OET certificate nor a Certificate of Sponsorship from any employer. NOTE: There are constant updates in the UK immigration requirements so this answer can change with time.
