Exceptional arrangements needed for overseas nurses working as HCAs in UK to become nurses

This petition had 3,285 supporters


Over the years many overseas qualified nurses have been employed in the UK private healthcare sector & NHS as HCA’s at band 2, 3 and 4. Each of these HCA, in addition to their overseas nursing qualification, which was taught and examined in English, have been practising in a totally English environment. They have proficiency in the English language as their daily work encompasses reading, writing, speaking and listening to the English language while engaged in a healthcare setup. 

While UK faces a severe shortage of nurses, we call upon NMC to incorporate exceptional arrangements, outside current NMC rules to facilitate their registration by verifying evidence of 

1.) their overseas pre-registration nursing qualification being taught and examined in English, 

2.) UK employer reference to confirm language proficiency

OR

     having completed a bachelors or masters from UK
