Nursing in turkey

I am a nurse practitioner in the UK and can prescribe all medication. I am thinking about moving out to live in turkey. I wondered if any one knows if I would be able to get employe lent in a private hospital or a clinic doing similar type of work? Also does anyone know how much money this sort of work would pay?
Thanks

Re: Nursing in turkey

Some professions are restricted to Turkish nationals: I am reasonably sure that Nursing is one of them.

Re: Nursing in turkey

unless things have changed in the last couple of years nursing is not one of the professions in which you can get a work permit for in Turkey,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Re: Nursing in turkey

hi there ..you might be able to get a job in a private medical clinic ..the owner would have to offer you work...and you wouldn't be nurse practitioner

there is a need for qualified nurses here in private practice since there are problems on both sides with the language ...few Turkish nırses speak good English and not many patients speak Turkish, but you rarely see a foreign nurse here unless she/he has has citizenship however ..also you wouldn't be able to prescribe.

Nursing standards here are vastly different from the UK..and the pay for a degree nurse is equally poor. about 2200 lira ...might have gone up a bit this year i doubt a private clinic would be overly generous either

Since Turkey is moving on up in Health Tourism eventually ..imo.. there will be more openings for professional workers

you dont say if you speak Turkish and without good language skills you would have difficulty both with colleagues and patients

however i wish you all the best and hope you prove me wrong and get a wonderful job with a fantastic salary

Re: Nursing in turkey

A friend of mine is a qualified French nurse, she has Turkish citizenship (married to a Turk) and lived in Turkey for 5 years. She wanted to work in Turkey, but her documents and qualifications had to be translated and accepted by the Turkish government. This took months, and eventually the family decided to return to France.
Without citizenship, accepted qualifications and language skills, forget about working as a nurse.

Re: Nursing in turkey

Hi,
I am curious as to what your decision was?

I am a Staff Nurse and would like to move to Turkey to work. I have intermediate Turkish so would need to improve. I have been married to a Turk for 11 years this year so I can get a Turkish passport etc now so there would be no problem with me working.

A local hospital have previously offered me an interview but suggested a course to improve my Turkish.

To be honest with you I lived in Turkey years ago and used t travel back to the UK and work agency which was financially great! Especially Mayday as they pay a bomb thesedays. BUT now I have a young family so this would not be plausable.

If you really want to move to Turkey why don't you work agency back in the UK on your visits there? You can keep your PIN up to date aswell.

I was told last year that as a Nurse I would be lucky to clear 1000 ytl a month. I didnt believe this at the time, but the Turkish person telling me was adament.

since then I have researched more online and it seems that it's more. Does anyone know anything in regards to the working week?

Many thanks
