Over the coming months, new international nurses will begin work in Northern Ireland, based in Southern Health and Social Care Trust.

The recruits, mostly from India and Zimbabwe, will be taking permanent posts across Daisy Hill, Lurgan, South Tyrone, and Craigavon hospitals.

The most recent group arriving in Ireland have already started a 12 week induction programme, which has been organised by the Trust’s International Nurse Recruitment Team.


On successful completion of the exam and registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council, each nurse will be supported as a Band 5 staff nurse through induction and preceptorship programmes.

The Trust has also secured a new dedicated training suite in Armagh.

The facility residential accommodation for up to 67 nurses to help support them in adjusting and familiarising themselves in their new community.
