    Hi

    I thought that lately you were heading to Edmonton with Geneva Health..so where exactly are you going?...You keep changing your mind.

    That's a good point, coocy2go. I get confused by some of the posters in the international threads. One month it's Canada, the next it's Australia, then whereever.

    hiya.

    at the momentthe only paper i'm lacking is the Verification for Registration Form for my nurse authority in the Philippines which my brother is happy sorting. this week hopefully then i shall maybe count 4-6 weeks from 1 Sept (atleast) for this assessment period to start and end.

    No Australia. just Canada on my sights for now.

    i guess i'll be here in the UK till January 2009 atleast. do i smell late winter/early spring in Canada?

    Snort-January isn't even half way through winter. We usually get a nice week of -30to40C that month. Spring doesn't hit Edmonton until May

    hi. i'm currenlty waiting for the nursing authority in the Philippines to post the Verification Of Registration form to Canada then i guess i will have to wait 4-6 weeks for the "assessment" thing. that's where my application stands right now.
    i'm glad your on your way now. where did you actually found some housing? any website you can recommend? i heard if you go to an agency here in the UK for a fixed fee they will help you with evrything...from homes to mobile phones,etc. would you do that?

    Hey Gino

    I dont think any agency will help you until you pay them. I asked my relatives and we walked around and took the estate agents phone numbers as they will be displayed on the sale sign in front of the houses.
    We met some pinoy nurses and they recommend you which areas you can rent. We are thinking of renting for the meantime cos we still got our house here in the UK.

    Bye for now

    Hi Cocoy. how's your work permit? any news?

    as for me ALL of my papers are now with CARNA and i'm just waiting for my eligibility status. GH sent me forms (police form, embassy form, etc.) and was told to start with them.

    if i get my eligibility status i'll have to turn up a gear all the things i need to "dispose of" like my TV, PC, etc. and will start inquiring on the best place to rent a flat. but i think GH will be providing me a "physical acccomodation" and not just money to rent for a month or so then i will be ;eft to find a place on my own....

    If i were you i wont do anything ...wait until you have your medical exam.

    It can be a long frustrating wait. Trust me ..look at the other post where you said you are buying new mobiles to use in Alberta. I told you before i have been waiting since 10th of June for my permit. Its already 3 months. Nothing has happened.

    Just imagine if i resigned in June and start selling my things ..then i wont have any money and nothing in the house. I will wait until i see the permit with my eyes then i know i am leaving.

    Bye

    Sounds like you already work in Alberta! I know nurses who are leaving positions to work "casual" for the same reasons. They all want m-f day shifts...

    so, would you advice me or agree with me if i say i would resign even before i start applying for that work permit or atleast wait till i get my eligibility status?

    hi Gino

    My advice is NO at the moment. Think well cos its not easy just doing bank shifts for months. No annual leave and no sickness. If you are financially OK my answer would still be NO. Save your money for the hard times in Alberta.

    Bye
