I am interested in learning why UK nurses are seeking employment overseas--it can be anywhere, although I am especially interested in those coming to the US. It is for an article I am writing, and I do not need to use your names.... Read More

    I am going to work in UCLA.i know it is expensive. but i can not see it being more expensive than london. my contract is 2yrs ,so maybe after 2yrs i might venture out to a different state.

    Hi
    I am writing to you from a TV production company called Ricochet. We are currently producing the fifth series of No Going Back and I am looking for people who are selling up in the UK and moving abroad to start a new business venture. I would love to hear from anyone who is doing something along these lines. Please contact me on nogoingback@ricochet.co.uk

    myself and my workmates are all here with OGRADY PEYTON, and the majority of us are happy with the agency, they take care of all the paperwork, pay for all the exams and study days to help with passing the n-clex. they pay for all flights to take the exam in america, and for me to relocate. the nurses are from the uk, barbados, poland, south africa, antigua, jamaica and st lucia. we get paid well even although the agency obviously charges the hospital more for us than we get. thats the name of the game, we also get overtime at time and a half.
    as a matter of interest to the nurses who are going by themselves....how much are the hospitals paying you? I know it depends on the area that you go to, but the hospital employed nurses where we are get less than the travel nurses.
    we sold everything before we came here, our home and business, cars and house contents. we arrived here with 2 suitcases each to begin again.
    7 months later we are surviving ....and doing very nicely.
    ps..whats your weather like? 84 degrees here today...just been out for dinner at a beach bar, watching the beautiful sunset.

    I am off to connecticut to start in June and it has taken 23 months with OGP. the longest bit was getting a job as I am paeds and they had no openings for ages. But got one now and we have sold our house here and ready to go as a family my children are 5 and 6. Our big adventure is right ahead of us.
