“I simply agree that the score in each IELTS category does not reflect my overall knowledge of the english language. Also, it is not a basis of my nursing knowledge in provide quality care to patients. In my opinion, for overseas non-EU nurse it would be much better to focus more on the adaptation program than the english exam where the topics are totally unrelated to helathcare. I have studied & graduated a degree in nursing in a University here in the UK and yet i could not practice nursing because i cannot pass the writing part of IELTS, which is the only thing that is preventing me to submit an application for registration. Other english countries take advantage of the people who studied & graduated in their country to make use of their educational attainment to the country's workforce. However in the UK, they allow EU to come here, some with no english knowledge but the UK government allows them take advantage of the benefit system after staying here for only a few months. No offense to some doctors here, I can't even understand what they say sometimes but they are practising and dealing with patients daily. I might be wrong, its only one person's opinion.” -Doreen De La Cruz

“NMC will never get a benefit from intaking some nurses who have english literature. A professional should be always assessed based on the skills and abilities he/she possess” - Nilesh Vincent
