Come on Your  tier 5 and work as a nurse!


Welcome to Continental Travelnurse

Congratulations on connecting with the UK’s premier travel nurse company. Founded in 2000, Continental Travelnurse combines key professionals drawing upon four decades of experience in travel nursing with friendly, informed young staff.

Continental Travelnurse deals with select clients in the most desirable locations in the UK. Our travel nurses are top-notch, so we only place them in the best hospitals and medical facilities. With Continental Travelnurse, each assignment is a new contract, so typically once you are on the UK register, your contract can be as short and easy as three months.

Getting your UK RGN has just become EASIER than ever and, WE’LL cover the costs*

There are new rules for obtaining your UK nursing registration. It’s easier than ever and quicker than ever.

Best of all our package not only helps you every step of the way but you’ll be reimbursed for it once you’re here.




If you like where you’re staying — and we bet you will — your head nurse will almost always ask you to “extend,” i.e. do another thirteen-week assignment. Just as typically, you will also be asked to “join the staff.” Of course, the option is entirely yours.


We’re certain an attractive hourly rate, the choice of a short-term commitment or  staff position, up market accommodations and even travel money are enticing enough.

But as a Continental Travelnurse employee, you may also receive:

  • 28 days paid vacation annually
  • Statutory sick pay
  • Continuing professional education
  • Paid for NMC , CBT, OSCE and OSCE prep*

Our office

is filled with  industry professionals who assist you with UK registration, offer work and travel advice, introduce you to other employees, host traveller parties, maintain regular contact and vicariously enjoy all your adventures.

Call now to discover how easy and fun it is to put your highly valued skills to good use while seeing the world.

-For those of you trained or working in English, the onerous English exam IELTS is NO LONGER required.

-The theory test (CBT) taken in your home country is easy peasy – almost entirely med / surg and we’ll cover the fee *

-The clinical test (OSCE) is given here and we’ll pay for it*
