Default Shortage list versus real life (UK) What is considered a nurse?

From my understanding, both the shortage list for Scotland and the UK show ALL nurses under Nursing, however, I have been told CNA (certified nursing assistant) does not count (fine) and now LPN does not count. So what is considered a nurse over there other than RN? I cannot believe that every facility only has RNs and no CNA or nursing assistant/aide and no LPNS (licensed practical nurse).

So what is a nurse according to the UK/Scotland? Just an RN? Or what?

Ref: Immigration Rules Appendix K: shortage occupation list
Shortage Occupation List.

2231 Nurses All jobs in this occupation code

Thanks for any help.

Facilities may well have Nursing Aides, but they are not Nurses, and just because facilities employ them it does not make the role eligible for work pemits.

UK equivalent to LPN has not existed since late 1990’s. Only recently have nursing associates become into being. Nursing auxiliaries will not count for work permits but they do work in hospitals etc
