    How neat! Please, CanadianNurseAbroad tell us about your experience abroad!
    WOW! You are living part of my dream! I love the US, sometimes wish I was working in Quebec city! But, I am always wondering how it would be to work in Ireland, Scotland, even Switzerland!Not that I ever went there. It's just a wonder?:typing
    How are the working conditions there?
    Life is good here in NY state and we are very independent in the ICU. The pay is not bad, higher than in Canada, lower than California... But, I still dream about coming home to my Qubec!
