We offer solid support, in-depth knowledge, and a personal touch.

We helped Sherin Samuel secure her dream position at the Princess Alexandra Hospital.  She shared her experiences with us “They helped me prepare for my interview by providing me with information related to the hospital and some sample questions likely to be asked during the interview. KCR helped me with each stages of NMC registration. I cleared my OSCE in the month of August 2017 and now I am a fully registered nurse in the UK!”

We strive to make sure our nurses are well taken care of upon their arrival in their new home. After they have arrived, we still are involved ensuring each nurse has everything they need to succeed! It’s such a great pleasure to meet our nurses face to face at the airports as they arrive in their new homes:

“It [The Meet and Greet] was very memorable because we finally met all the people we’re communicating with after months of processing. We were well taken cared of when we arrived in  Limerick, it was a lovely experience” Emmanuel Ventura, Philippines

But it doesn’t stop there. We want you to have the best of experiences!  Just ask Clarence Francisco who moved to Ireland, “Adjusting in the new place became so easy with me because I am under Kate Cowhig Recruitment.”
