(WATCH:UK needs more Filipino nurses)



An academic IELTS score of 7.0 in each skill is one of the requirements for overseas registered nurses trained outside of the European Economic Area or European Union who are applying for registration with the UK’s Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). 



However, with the relaxation of the required IELTS rating of 6.5 in one or two categories, theirs a big chance for nurses fo pass the computer-based test.

The IELTS is administered by the British Council in Manila.



Filipino nurses who want to work in the UK considered the IELTS as a stumbling block.

Philippine Labor Attache Joan Lavilla said nurses will be needed in the fields of cardiology, critical care, cardiac surgery, cardio thoracic, coronary care and catheter lab, and theater practitioners.

"The demand for Filipino nurses is expected to continue in the following months, given that most UK employers prefer to source nurses from the Philippines,” Lavilla said.


Here are the latest job orders from Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) bound to the United Kingdom from January 27 to February 1, 2016
