Intro about me first...
I completed my training in 1988 in Scotland. I have been married to an American for 20years. We considered moving over to the US many times and we ended up settling in London and then Winchester. Last year we finally decided to move, my husband got a job transfer and we were able to move over with a spousal visa, i still had to jump through all the hoops to get the visa. I moved over in November. We are in San Diego. I have a 19yr old son, 17yr old daughter and a 10 yr old daughter.
I am awaiting my approval from Vermont to sit the NCLEX exam, i didn't apply until the end of October, and i have tried to study :trout: , at the moment i am not working, well can't as a nurse anyway i think i can work as a care assistant, not really looked into it. I have my green card.
Moving on to today........
My husband wanted to get Life Insurance and they invited themselves over to do a health check.The woman was so rude. We live in an apartment in a gated community, so you have to park on the road and obviously press the buzzer, my husband ended up having to help her get her stuff out of the car and she was anoyed that she could not park, i mean she had to walk a 100yards , heavens above
. So when she came into the flat she was so rude to us. My husband asked her if she was an RN or LVN, she said that she was not. My husband told her that i was studying for the RN exam. She started to say how difficult the exam was in California. I explained to her that it was a national exam. She argued back and i just lost it. I shouted at her, one exam then you endorse your licence for the state you want to work at. Not once why she was working with my husband did she say please or thank you.
I just get annoyed when people think they know it all.
Disclaimer, i'm not trying to say that all americans are rude just venting about this one.
I miss working, but i knew things would change on the ward i worked in as wards were closing, and i miss my colleagues that i worked with.
Just needed to vent.
