Thousands of Nurses Could Be Pushed Out of UK -- Union

The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) has claimed thousands of foreign-born nurses could be forced to leave the UK under changes starting next year requiring immigrants from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) to earn £35,000 or more to stay in the UK after six years, reports Sky News. Nearly 3,365 nurses currently working in the UK, recruited at a cost of over £20m, will potentially be affected, claimed the union.
