Steps for deployment to the UK

Following a successful interview our dedicated International Recruitment Team will support you with your NMC registration and deployment to the UK. The steps to be followed:

1. Take your English test (either OET or IELTS)
2. Start your NMC application as a Registered Mental Health Nurse (RMN) – your application fee is funded to you
3. Take your RMN CBT test – this is funded to you
4. Complete your NMC application for verification
5. Once verification is completed by the NMC, you will be approved to take your OSCE and we can deploy you to the UK to start your employment

We will then contact you to arrange a date for your interview but please note: your interview is NOT booked until one of the members from our team emails you to confirm everything.

For those candidates with English Test passes, there is potential for quick deployments to the UK, so when sending your CV please send your OET or IELTS certificate also. HOWEVER, for interview we  accept candidates with or without an English pass
