everyone on the uk thread seems to be thinking of moving abroad! Must admit the thought has crossed my mind, and I wonder how easy it would be!are we so bad in the uk though, makes me a wee bit sad that everyone seems so discontent(including me at times!!):uhoh21: could we provide more support for each other in issues that affect us in the UK?
just my "two pence worth!"

Quote from madwife2002
We didnt move to the US because I was unhappy with nursing in the uk we moved here because we wanted to live here. Nursing was simply the tool to enable us to emigrate. To be truthful I miss my job back home in the Uk I was one of the lucky ones who had a great job and I loved it.
My sister has been trying to convince me to transfer to Oz for 3 yrs now. She said I won't be able to buy a house here in England (we live in Haywards heath- and property prices are so high!). The only reason I don't want to move is my job! Love it! I get a decent pay too! The staff I work with are the best and management would often bend over backwards for me if I need an emergency day off, AL, CL, SL etc... I literally make my own off duty/ on call schedule.
Unfortunately, my husband is not as lucky. He works in A+E and they are planning to down grade his department w/c meant that he might get redundant and have to look for another nursing job... That would have been easy if there are jobs available!
We were looking for a house to buy for the past 3 mos and everything that we like, we simply can't afford. And now with my husband's job at risk, we don't want to commit to buy at all!
Hence the decision to finally listen to my dear sister's advise.

i am one of the nurses who made the move from scotland to the usa, we chose to do something different and wanted to come to the states as we had always liked it here when we came on holiday and we didnt have to learn a new language to come.
i would love to see more uk nurses post here to keep us up to date with whats going on back home, even non-nursing news, as its hard to come by over here.
[color=#556b2f]i also like to keep up with all the uk-usa nurses to hear what their experiences are as this is a big place and they are all different.
