    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.

    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!!!!

    I think she'd like a pot as big as your head, Ibby.

    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?

    Hi Gino

    How come you have to sit the SEC thing about the mental health. My pinoy girlfriend got her eligibility letter without any reference to that SEC thing. She trained in the Philippines as yourself.

    Yesterday she got her work permit via the post. So I dont understand why they ask you to sit for the SEC. So what are you going to do now? You are nearly there now. Are you going to give up and regret later in life?

    You have to do what you feel is right and I do think that you should be patient and dont look at Alberta as a way out from your ward. I dont know what is the issue you are having on your ward but just do the move cos you want to do it not cos you want to run away from your problem in your ward.

    Bye for now

    i do not know why i have to sit this whole SEC exam thing but my only guess is that probabbly what they found on my CV and app forms is a "lack of number of hours" it dealing with mental health patients. that's all i can gather.

    i was told by GH that all my forms are in the Canada High Commision and that i will hear from them in 4-6 weeks. i know i'm almost there and i'm just biting my tounge and trying to be patient. so far so good and i havn't heard of any complaints about me or any issues, etc. so ill just keep my practice safe i suppose.

    my parents kept asking me why Canada and not the U.S. or Australia. i always tell them that an opportunity came to me and not because "i'm not happy with my ward". in a way yes i am not happy but i want to try and look on the bigger picture about my future and my wife. (were getting married this march

    are you in Canada now Cocoy2go? how are you? and how is it there?
