UK NMC should give Africa Nurses one year extension on their IELTS/CBT/OET results.

Africa Nurses are all pleading with the UK Nursing and midwifery council to extend the validity of their IELTS/OET/CBT results by one year, especially those that had their various results before the covid 19.

Firstly, the covid 19 situation caused a lot of set back when all OSCE centers had to be closed because of the pandemic.

Secondly, even after opening the centers, many recruiters are recruiting only nurses with UK PIN. They are not recruiting from Africa.

This is causing a lot complaints among the Africa nurses, some of them are very depressed, as many collect loans to sit for these exams.

Here is an example of one of the various complaints:

Open to job opportunities, DL from NMC UK1d • 1 day agoI am having a mental breakdown, I have struggled so hard to pass IELTS at my second attempt, CBT and verification process for NMC registration and since April, I have not been able to secure a job in the UK.

This is psychologically draining for me. I took loans and still even paying back. House rent is expired and I am determined not to pay for another year in Nigeria.

I am optimistic, I send out at least 10 applications every day and it has been rejections. I managed to get an interview and they said I wasn't successful, yet they didn't give me any feedback.

Most of the rejection mails I received said they have been banned from recruiting health workers from Nigeria. It is so frustrating. I contacted many agencies and it's either they say the same thing or raise my hopes and then become silent. I have reviewed my CV many times to meet up with UK standards. I am so tired, I have been strong all along but these past few days, I have really been so down. I just want to put this here to at least shed off some of these burdens in my mind.
