This is an excellent opportunity that will change your views on how to become a UK registered nurse through an excellent group of people who are willing to help you every step of the way and the opportunities Ian presented to us especially the training, were amazing.

I would tell them that IANS is a very reputable company who can help them through the whole process because they have a specialised team that is very knowledgeable in every aspect of the journey towards being a UK RN and my experience gap is not a hindrance for me to reach my dream of being a nurse in the UK.

I would 100 percent recommend IANS to help anyone looking to work in the UK without waiting on sponsors, especially if you are not the strongest candidate. The expert tips and processes discussed at webinar were amazing. My longtime concerns around my long work gaps are finally addressed. I'm looking forward to becoming a UK RN very soon.


Kris Pearl Vinluan Registered Nurse | Philippines
It was indeed a realistic option especially for those with gap in their experience or those who are struggling to get an interview. On top of that the 3 step strategy and the IANS commitment to help us come to the UK as Registered Nurse has made me put trust in them.

I highly enjoyed this webinar as it informed me of many things I should know to become a UK RN and I would say that paying for this was worth it.

Ian is down to earth and he relates with nurses very well. I need to be ready to work and study hard and Ian would do his best to help me to settle in the UK.


Angel Pitogo registered nurse | Philippines

Its worth it and was very informative. It can really help those who are having a hard time getting a reply from different agencies as well as addressing those who are not confident enough with regards to their working experience. I was relieved as not all hope was lost as the three-step process was introduced for us to attain our dreams.


May Rejoyce Ayunon registered nurse | Philippines
Thee webinar is an eye opener for those who want to go to UK immediately and for those who are still waiting for their applications. It also gives encouragement to other nurses to work abroad even though they have long work gaps like me. I have learnt to not be discouraged with my application in working to UK because I know IANS will help and they have a lot of possible routes and steps for me to be able to work on my dream job.
