Is she can work as a nurse in U.K. ?

My mom is a university graduate nurse. She has been working 30 years in Turkey as a nurse. She has visa to work in U.K. Is it possible to work as a nurse? Is there any accreditation process etc?

    There is only one nursing specialty listed as eligible for any employment visa in UK, and she would need a university degree (BSN/MSN, not RN), plus specialized training & experience in that particular specialty. Plus she must be fluent in English.

    No other way to work as a nurse in UK. UK has citizens with nursing degrees looking for work.

    The only way your mother could have an employment visa would be to have been hired in this specific category & the employer got her visa. She would not be looking for work. It does not sound like your mother has any valid employment visa for UK from your info here.

    "She has visa to work in U.K." If that was the case then your mother has an employer sponsored visa for a specific high level, highly skilled position ( and it is not a nursing position as work visas are not given for nurses) so I think you are mistaken your mother doesn't have a UK work visa, maybe she would like one..........

      why you think that "your mother has an employer sponsored visa for a specific high level, highly skilled position "? is this the only way to have visa? for example marriage?
