Probably, assuming you have proof of the Nursing degree.

Try the RCN they should know, or will be able to give you the contact details for the nursing bodies in the states and NZ that you can emial to find out.

Thye may not - I know physiotherapy degrees from england are not accepted in NZ with additional exams, and in the states you need to have an MSc before they'll accept you, so deffo best to just drop them a line and find out

not in the states becasu they don't have an equivalent to the branches they do a slightly more generic 'general' training and then specialise post registration. Branch registration is mainly an EU thing

I think that you can go to america as they have a visa specially designed for nurses from all parts of the world you will just need to do a 6 month training within the hospital it will differ in different states though but i am sure this was the case in florida as i use to live there.
Hope this helps x

It's more than possible to do in NZ & Australia; and throughout the year there are actually some recruitment events held in London for those specific countries, which are always worth looking at. They'll help you with all the paperwork too.

The States though is a far more complicated. Like it's already been said, there isn't any branch specification, so getting in on a Children's Nursing degree is impossible. One option would be to apply for dual registration here, and complete an extra year (or it may be two) to qualify as an Adult Nurse too. That way you could go to the US, and your previous Paeds experience/training would allow you to get a job in a Child Health setting.

The other option; and I'm not even entirely sure it exists, is a conversion programme maybe? I know varying countries have them, (the USA might too!) so it's worth looking into, to see if you can convert your existing degree into a US suited one.

Hie
to work in the USA you will need to have done a certain number of hours in theory and practicals in all four areas of nursing, paeds, martenity, mental and adult. This can be done if you have not got enough by topping up the hours . If it really is your dream to go to the USA it can be done but with dedication. Check out www.allnurses.com its a forum for nurses run by nurses and if you go to the international link there is tons of infor and the nurses on ther are very willing to help. Just read thru the threads. There is one thread on working in the USA it details what to do. and there is a link to working in NZ and OZ too. all the best.
