    Well with the current scumbag conservative government in control of the UK parliament and raising fees the "wait 'till I have experience" option is my only option :-(

    The wonderful thing about overseas travel is that it is a great educator..........

    Hope the Uk is everthing you hope it will be..

    wish you goodluck with your nursing education,

    Then why go to the UK? Having lived there for most of my life I can tell you it doesn't matter who is in power the issues are the same and long before the new government came in things where already in motion to restrict non EU workers. At the end of the day the UK has a high unemployment and has to take care of their own first.
