I hope you like it here.

Many nurses have come from England. I only know of one who did not like it. Perhaps part of her frustration was that she had been qualified for only one year. I think six years experience will make it easier.

I know many at UCLA but not in pediatrics. We have a real need in this city for nurses trained and experienced in caring for children.

I suggest you get a promise that your orientation period be as long as you need to adjust to the differences in regulations here and the new hospital as well. I am told the management at UCLA is very supportive of flexible orientation times so ask for what you think you need.

I'm only passing on what fellow nurses from England (and other countries) have told me.

Welcome! I think you will like the warm sunny winter days.

To my knowledge London has a better transportation system. You will want a car.
