You need IELTS and less 7 months to get to practice in U.K as a nurse .
Step 1. IELTS Training
This is the first step for anyone planning for Overseas Nursing jobs. We understand that sometimes it becomes hard for a hardworking nursing to work and prepare IELTS at the same time and we have created an innovative and flexible training which prepares nurses from any part of the country and world at large.
This is to the fact that our students only require to be able to access WhatsApp. Our online training is majorly through WhatsApp, quite convenient for you guys since it doesn’t matter where you are, provided you are able to access WhatsApp.
It’s a six weeks training.
Step 2: IELTS Exam
After Six weeks of IELTS training you will be ready to be presented for an exam.
All our students are only allowed to prepare and sit for IELTS Academic Module.
This is the required module for your NMC registration and UK Immigration
At kenyanNurse we normally guide our students on how and when to book the exam. This is normally after your 3rd week in the training. Fortunately, before you start your training you will be given the Training Timetable which will include your exam date.
IELTS exam is Ksh. 24,820 which is paid directly to British Council either through Standard Bank or online.
The IELTS Exam results are always released after 13 days of your exam.
Required IELTS Scores
For one to register in UK with NMC you need the score the following minimum Scores
Step 3: NMC Registration
Immediately after IELTS Exam as you await for your results, we shall guide you on how to register and submit documents for your NMC account registration.
You also need the following so we can do the application; Remember that you won’t be able to take the exam before making this application. :
4. Birth certificate
NCK Documents Verification
Immediately you pay NMC they will email your registration request to NCK’s email.
You will have to contact NCK to request them to check whether they have received any link from NMC concerning your NMC registration application.
Once NCK confirms reception of the link, they will request you to make some payment.
After this,you will need to visit nck
-Valid practising license
– Training Institution Certificate
-Good conduct certificate
– Declaration of good health (Signed by an M. O and stamped)
Recommendation Letter (Written by your referee and stamped)
We have our reservations on this cost. It’s our belief that NCK shouldn’t charge such amount just to fill your details in an online link. They should consider charging nurses utmost 5k since they no longer have the postage fee as it used to be in the old NMC registration process.
Training institution Verification
Your college or university where you trained will also receive a link to fill your training details.
You need to contact Director of academics in your training institutions for this. If you trained in KMTC you will all be processed centrally at the Nairobi Campus by the KMTC Director of Academics. And if you trained in a private Nursing school please contact either your principal or H.O.D Academics. For those who are from Nursing Universities please contact either the Dean school of Nursing or H.O.D.
NMC Invitation Letter
After this you will receive an invitation to Competence Test Letter which will be requesting you to proceed to CBT exam and OSCEs (normally done in UK).
While arranging for your interview, we shall always be requesting you for this email, please print it.
Authorization To Test (ATT)
After NCK and training institutions have responded to the NMC links, you will be issued with NMC CBT Authorization To Test (ATT). With this, now you will be connected to the testing company called Pearson Vue automatically
Pearson Vue will then email you two emails, the first be your temporary password and the second will be carrying your username.
