Uk for Uk? - page 7

Hi all, Sorry if this offends anyone, but over the last few months, all I've seen in the UK forum is how people are wanting to go to the US! I understand why you might want to do it... but I... Read More

    I want to work in the UK or Ireland and am currently a st/n in manchester But i,m regreeting not looking into irish pre registration course. UK pre-regs as has been said are specilaist even the Adult branch the R.O.I has a 4 years degree in nursing leading to RGN reg, they also have our other branches. I have ambition to trave and use my RN to do so but begining to think no other country will acept my Regristation, these being new zealand Aus and canada. i know canada is out.
    What kind of student are you? You say you want to work in UK or Ireland then say you want to travel. Why is Canada out. Are you from the UK?

    Been re-reading through this thread, it is sad that so many nurses within the NHS feel the need to leave because of the system. If you are following a dream and have always wanted to work somewhere else then that's fantastic.

    I still love working in the NHS, I feel very fortunate because within my role I do get time to spend with my patients and assess them, talk to them, reassure them. The nurses on the ward work very hard but certainly within my unit I would say the standard of nursing care is excellent. We strive to provide the essential basics of care and maintain standards, I think that the majority of the time we achieve this too. Thats not to ay that I have rose coloured glasses, yes there are huge problems within the NHS but there are outstanding nurses who do a brilliant job.

    I have always been very determined within my carreer, if I didn't like the way things were running then I have got myself into a postition that I am able to influence change. I know that there are some things that I will not be able to influence but within my area I have a fair amount of autonomy and independent practice which means that I am able to work with my staff to use the resources we have in the best ways possible.

    Plato353 you say that over here (UK) nurses are "go getters", there may be some element of that but that is not everything that UK nursing is about. I look around at the efforts and progress that UK nurses make to survive in a struggling system and feel proud to work alongside them. Yes we have all heard nurse get me this, nurse get me that, but we also hear I couldn't have got through this without your care, thankyou for everything, I can really talk to you nurse, I never feel rushed when your on duty.

    If there are things that we don't like then we write papers, present evidence, discuss with senior managers and change - yes sometimes comprimise, sometimes fail but we try.

    I still love working in the NHS

    I so agree with your comments, I left the Uk to follow a dream and to be with my family. I had a lovely job in the UK and worked with a great bunch of staff-I was very sad to leave. I miss nursing in the UK but I doubt I will work as a floor nurse again as I have injured my back since being in the US.
    Before I left we strived to keep everything together with a very tight budget, but we all pulled together as a team.

    I'm a Adult branch student from Northern Ireland(UK) but training in manchester and i want to use my Registration to work and see whe world a bit for a few years. Personal dream and though not all the nurses i've spoke to have found the grass greenere and some return to the NHS they did have a experince of diffenernt health care systems. I then want to come back to UK or Ireland to work. As many posters have said the RN(A) does not met the requiremnts of Canada, pity i've always fancied there. However Australia and NZ accept registrants from each other and Austraila accepts EU directive nurses and that would be me.

    well said mabel.....i have now been away for 2 years so missed the agenda for change, but was recently back home visiting the ward where i worked, and its still the same, with nearly all the same staff. yes they moan and groan but yes they mostly enjoy the work and the camaraderie with each other. i do believe that uk nurses are a lot more autonomous than in the us, uk doctors....regardless of their roots listen to what the nurses have to say about their patients, and act on it, in the us,,,quite often doctors write orders for patients without even acknowledging that the nurse exists, and then the nurse has to follow the orders, not knowing what has been discussed between doctor and patient, and we all know that what the patient says is not always quite the way that they have behaved.
    this is the way that i have seen it happen, no doubt other nurses will have seen things being done differently in the areas that they work.
