This Is Why Our RNs Prefer The UK
The idea of adjusting to something new is really challenging yet exciting. For some, It is quite fearsome moving to a new land - miles away from families. But, let us help you clear your mind from hesitations. If the idea of being a UKRN is still jaded for you, we can attest this is not an isolated case. Many of our deployed candidates, indeed, were doubtful to pursue a career in the west initially. Yet, during the process, they were actually the ones who claimed later on that the U.K. is one of the best countries for nurses to work and live in.
To share some, we’ve listed down some of the notable things that our deployed workers love about working at NHSP in the UK.
There is Guaranteed Job Security for You
When you choose a nursing career in the U.K., you don’t have to worry about losing your job because there’s always a need for healthcare workers. The overseas nurses who work with NHS Trusts will benefit from a high level of job security as registered nurses are considered the backbone of the NHS. Also, it is clearly impossible how hospitals will operate without healthcare workers, so rest assured that there’s always an opportunity for you.
You Can Maintain a Healthy Work-Life Balance in This Country
Of course, it is not only about working on your professional goals but also your personal ones. Maintaining a work-life balance helps reduce stress and can improve one’s productivity. It also prevents burnout in the workplace. The U.K. has some leading hospitals and practices that offer great professional development opportunities, and at the same time working in an environment full of great people and places. So why not take a break for some time? Take advantage and get to explore the breathtaking places that the country has!
You Can Have a Great Range of Benefits That the Trust Offers
A nursing career within the NHS provides excellent salary and a range of great benefits. Some of NHS Trusts’ great benefits are: paid visa cost, overtime pay and priority in NHS employment bank, reimbursement of costs, and assistance for your OSCE preparation. Nurses often choose this country because they are compensated competently for their work, and you can too, make a good life in the U.K. because of its good wage basis.
You'll Be Able to Get Out of Your Comfort Zone and Explore More Opportunities
The U.K. attracts more nurses because of its developed economy, high standard of living, and exceptional working conditions. There is a wide range of career options for nurses who want to explore and pursue different specialties. You don’t have to be afraid to try something new or different, as this will make you adaptable to change and helps you develop your inner strength. As part of the NHS, you are entitled to access to a range of training courses to help you learn new skills and continue to grow in your career as a UKRN.
Settle on a Schedule That Works For You
Providing outstanding patient care in innovative hospitals and at the same time, still committing to a work-life balance situation; the NHS focuses on supporting nurses with manageable work hours. You have the option of working on the shift you desire, whether it is the usual, rotational, or night shift. Overseas nurses in the NHS will have a standard working week total of 37.5 hours. Deciding to work extra hours? No worries, because you will be entitled to overtime allowances.
