Hello! I am a nurse working in upstate NY, although I am originally from the greater metropolitan area of NY. I moved upstate when I was employed on a Surgical unit in a hospital. Now, after only 8 months of working here, I am worn out. I love my coworkers (for the most part) and I like the setting we live in, but it has gotten to be too much for me. Everything is too far (especially since I do not drive). So, my husband and I have been discussing where we would like to move, and we have come to the conclusion that we no longer want to reside in the U.S.I recently came upon an agency called Continental Travelnurse which helps RN's go to various places in the UK. I'm not sure if that is the route that I will take, but I do know for sure that we want to move. So the reason I am posting is to find out about nursing in the UK. Average salaries? Patient to nurse ratio? I am well aware that nurses are not seen in the same light in the UK as they are here in America - I've heard this many times and even encountered it when I was in my parent's homeland, Hungary. What would be the best route to take? I know living prices are high in London, but how are they in Edinburgh, Bristol, Oxford? How is The Royal Infirmary Edinburgh?Any and all information is GREATLY appreciated! Thank you so much!
