    Ibby I am sure you will find it is worth it a lot sooner than in 12 months. Yes it is nerve racking but what an experience and I have no doubts you will settle

    Hi

    It is the fear of the unknown. Uncharted territory. I guess its normal to feel that way. Thanks a lot guys for your support or else i would have given up a long time ago.

    We moved to NS knowing nobody and everyone we have met has made us feel so welcome. Canadians are very friendly and will point you in the direction you need

    There's also plenty of us who've gone before to help you. I'm even in the same hospital you'll be coming to - so don't be afraid to ask for help!

    I'm really surprised at how settled I feel. I keep waiting for this "homesickness" to set in......but nothing!! I don't miss London one tiny little bit!!

    Of course if you want to bring me a pressie a large tub of marmite will do :rollI can get it - it's just 4x the price!

    Seriously - you'll be fine I'm sure. Now get back to that packing!!!!

    Hi Cocoy2Go

    the other option was basically to go to Canada and then take the exam there right there which i think for me is not practical at the moment. i think those 2 options was given to me 'cause maybe i had little experience with mental health patients.

    today i had posted back the signed contract and the United Nurses of Alberta factsheet back to my agency. also along with my Police certificate form too. i have yet to hear from them as to what is my next move.

    i know it's a big move but because on my part i am just fed up with working on my ward so i'm doing this step-by-step and as smooth as possible. i have started to sell my stuff here (from DVD's to my desktop PC to my freeview box,etc.) and i plan to buy atleast 1 more coat or thick jacket during the sales and maybe a pair of shoes/trainers.

    did you have to wait for 3 months before you got your work permit?
