  1. Hi everyone,
    As you can see I am new today, I am a British trained nurse, started as SEN (LPN) in 1974, then converted in 1994 to RN. My speciality is NICU. I am at present preparing to sit the CGFNS in London on March 8th that's if hopefully all my papers are accepted, I had trouble in 1996 long story. The CGFNS just seem so slow. My dream is to live and work in USA, mainly Florida as I have many friends there. If anyone knows what I have to expect with the CGFNS exam I would be very grateful to hear from them. It is very nerve wracking doing this on my own and would really love to hear from anyone who can give me any positive feedback. My next plan in March after CGFNS is to go to Florida to study for my NCLEX-RN at a Kaplan Center as I feel that would give me the best chance to pass first time. Look forward to hearing from you.

    to create your own new thread (the first post to start off feedback), you do this:
    in any forum, go to the top yellow bar and towards the right, you will see something that reads--> forum tools. it is a pull down menu. click it. in that menu, you will see--> post a new thread. click that.

    and there you go.....just follows what it tells you.

    Welcome

    As other posters have already said, there are loads of people who will be able to welcome you in the UK threads - some who have already made the move and some who are going through the same process right now.

    I am UK based, and look forward to seeing you on the UK thread, although I can't give you any advice as I have no experience in the move.

    Just wanted to give you a warm welcome!
