International Nurses Your Career Our Commitment


The NHS is made up of many nations. We are proud that our workforce is extremely diverse – just like our patients. The NHS has always benefited from nurses coming from other countries to live and work in England. Internationally recruited nurses are an important part of our NHS workforce and your work is vital in ensuring we can continue to deliver world-class health and care.

Almost half of those joining the NMC register in 2021/22 had trained outside the UK.

Via the link below, you will find links to a range of resources and support to help you plan your next career steps.  You can also hear from six internationally recruited NHS nurses at different stages of their career. We invite you to discover their stories, learn about how the NHS has supported them to achieve their ambitions and explore the resources available to progress your own career.
