Hi UK nurses,

Hoping to make it to the UK by the end of the year/early 2021(depending on Brexit &NMC registration). I am open to working anywhere except London due to the cost of living.Looking for suggestions on where to end up? In my 30s,love the outdoors and the sea,hiking. Looking for a budget friendly place near a city but yet close to nature and not too isolated(I have a car) It would help if it is warmer than Dublin. Currently looking at Plymouth?Southampton?Bristol?Glasgow? Thanks a bunch.

You are asking a very big question. Where to go????

Obviously I don't know England that well as I live in Scotland so what about adding Stirling, Perth, Inverness, Dundee, Aberdeen, Paisley oh any number of places in Scotland to your search? All near to hills and some near to the sea. (Not denigrating England, lots of nice places in England).

You say you have a car... but will you? Are you going to ship it over? seems an unnecessary expense - get one here but remember we drive on the left and have things like MOT to contend with and will your driving licence be sufficient?

Weather is what it is. It can be cold in Winter but not as cold as some places in America.

Hope it works for you and you make it over.

Thanks your tips. Will definitely look  up Scotland. Already in Dublin,driving on the wrong side of the road. Had take a driving an Irish driving test,etc. I believe the Irish DL is transferable?My plan was to wade across the Irish Sea...LOL. I hope to make it over sooner than later.
