Trainee nurses want to work abroad
By:

STUDENTS at nursing college are showing more desire than ever to work abroad, with requests for information about jobs in the UK, Norway and Germany increasing by 200 per cent.

According to one such college in Alicante, careers advisors normally receive about 50 enquiries a year from student nurses looking to move overseas when they qualify, but these have now risen to 150 annually.

The most popular destinations are Great Britain, Germany and the Scandinavian countries, particularly Norway, but there has also been a huge increase in the number of applications for information about working in Latin America and Canada.

Before nurses can take up or look for jobs in other countries, they need a certificate of professional status to be issued by their college.

In the past three years, about 25 of these a year were handed out, but so far in 2012 over 40 have been presented.

A substantial number of offers of paid work experience placements in Germany have been offered to nursing colleges in Spain in recent months.
