Unsure if your lack of experience in a non- training post would go against you ?

On the job hunting - you probably won't get anywhere if you haven't got a visa to come and work here - or you're at least on path to applying.
In general employers don't consider you unless you are in complete demand and it is essential they get you here asap.
On the remote occasion this happens you are usually offered a job then you apply for the visa to work here and your new employer assists Immigration to get the visa through quickly.

It's the classic catch 22. Can't get a job without the visa but can't get a visa without the job.

Thank you so much for your reply. My husband is due to start Uni in the autumn and I am hoping to qualify and start work so if all goes to some
Sort of plan then before I apply I should have at least two years experience of nursing so hopefully that will be an easier transition. Thank you for your information and I will keep coming back to visit and see all the other useful info posted too. Thank you again. X x x
