Work for East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust
We have been recruiting international nurses for many years, with the first arriving in 1999. As a result, we have a significant number of international nurses working in the Trust, from many different countries. Over time, our nurses have often brought their families over to the UK, and they in turn have secured employment with us, or other local employers, contributing to an increase in diversity in our local community.
We have a dedicated team working directly with our international colleagues, from greeting them on arrival to the hospital, to orientating them on what life will be like living in the UK, to supporting them through the NMC (Nursing and Midwifery Council) process to gain their registration.
As a Trust we have evolved and continued to develop our recruitment processes to ensure we are following the NMC Guidelines as they have reformed and that our recruitment from other countries is ethical. International nurses can apply to be on the NMC register, providing they meet its standards. The NMC will compare the training in the country of study with that required in the UK.
The requirements for registration are different for nurses who trained in the UK and EEA to those who trained outside the UK and EEA.

We strive to ensure that our new arrivals feel welcomed to the UK and to the Trust.
