Best Places for Nurses to Work Abroad
« on: December 28, 2016, 09:08:36 PM »
Here is the list of best countries for nursing salary

1. United Kingdom
For pay scales in healthcare, nurses fall in Band 5 or above depending on experience and qualifications. For nurses trained outside the European Union or European Economic Area, you will need to register as a nurse with the regulatory agency in UK, Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).

This process includes application, eligibility tests and other formalities. Registration requirements and process check out

2. United States of America
Registered nurses in the US usually have a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing (BNS – 4 years), an associate degree in nursing (AND – 2 years) or a diploma from a nationally approved nursing program (3 years).

For foreign nurses, you are required to have a Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools (CGFNS) certificate or a full and unrestricted license to practice professional nursing in the state of intended employment (NCLEX). Having an employer ready to go ahead with your immigration process is essential for getting a visa and license; the process can take up to one year.

3. Norway
Norwegian Directorate of Health issues licenses to practice in the healthcare industry and you will need to apply online. Knowledge of the Norwegian language is essential to migrate. For registration requirements and process check out

4. Canada
Internationally Educated Nurses (IENs) wanting to work in Canada should get licensed as per the processes followed by Canadian registered nurses.

5. Australia
To practice as a registered nurse in Australia, you must complete two independent processes. One is to be registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) and the other is to get a visa.

For nurses, the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Council (ANMAC) performs skills assessments for migration (visa process) while NMBA assesses whether your educational qualifications are equivalent to corresponding Australian qualifications. Neither of these guarantee you a job in Australia. It is advised to complete both processes and get a job before moving to Australia. For registration requirements and process check out
