This is something I have not heard anything about. That said, all that is required for a health/medical letter is a statement that you do not have any communicable diseases. So long as what ever caused the lung scarring is not an issue and is not a communicable disease, it should not be an issue. You could call immigration directly and ask - (242)322-7530

The Lung Scarring due to PTB (Pulmonary Tuberculosis) but it is treated for six months,now the Sputum result is negative for active Bacilli and the lungs is clear but the Scar is still in the right upper lobe. I'm bothered because maybe this Scar would hinder my application in the Bahamas. I had an experience applying as Staff nurse in the Middle
East (Saudi Arabia),my medical result is UNFIT to work because of these Lung Scarring. The medical doctor told me that due to Lung Scarring I"m not able to work in Saudi Arabia even my lung is clear and negative for active Bacilli because of the Guidelines and Protocol of the Middle East Country. Please more information about Bahamas Laws and Guidelines about Lung Scarring ..thank you so much..Breija thank you also for the reply and God bless.

Hi Jover, I really do not know. You would be best to try calling Immigration on Monday to find out. The only medical letter required is one indicating that you currently do not have any communicable diseases. That said, if you are coming in to work in a hospital or medical facility (as opposed to being a private nurse) the facility may have more stringent criteria. I suggest you contact Immigration to ask generally, and speak with your potential employer to find out whether they have more stringent requirements. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Hi Joverbraxton,

I have absolutely no idea. I am not a nurse. You could probably contact the Health Professions Counsel and ask them. Here is a link for the Nursing Council division of the Health Professions Council.
