What have I been eating? Food
I'm not very adventurous with food so, I have not eaten English dishes yet save Burger, pick, fish and chips. I have also tried 2 Philipinos food because the coast was clear(fish and meat �)
So, basically I eat rice and stew, bread and tea and fruits. I finally got a shop where they sell Asian dishes and luckily for me they stock Okro. Finally made my favorite soup even though I still don't understand the kind of fish I bought but the feeling was out of this world. I have been given description for Afro shop Sha. Would check it out soon.

Please can you tell us in a clear language what to look out for. What and what. Plz
They should be plain and everything should be well spelt out on prints. Watch out for professionalism, and consistency. Verify information yourself. Then ask questions and be satisfied. Remember no one is doing you a favor.

why would you give a dumb answer that I didn't ask you?you don't know why im asking.u just jumped into conclusion as if I have hidden agenda.to my uk nurse,I'm only asking maybe u did spouse visa.im asking on behalf my bro & his nurse wife.
It is dependent visa and it is different from spousal visa. Infact it was because of this confusion we concluded he need to stay back. If he wants to go with his wife he needs to pay for IHS which is 1200, visa 464 all in pounds and his flight. He might not have to worry about accommodation for at least two months (my employers were willing to get a family accommodation for us). If he has children, the charges would definitely add up as per child.

You know what you are looking out for, they are almost similar benefits from employers but you can look out for what you are most comfortable with.
There are plenty of agencies and hospital to choose from.
Good day
I have been following your thread and it's been quite inspiring, I did art in secondary school, and have a few professional certificates.i want to change career What steps can I take in being a nurse? I wouldn't mind having a diploma or an associate degree. How many years did it take you to complete your diploma?

Diploma takes 3years
You can choose any school of nursing
Entry requirements: credit at least in maths, English, biology, chemistry and physics.
They have entrance examinations and interviews. Shortlisted candidates then start the journey of 3 years.
Degree requires 5 credits also with jamb score requirements for different institutions. It's 5 years

I used Neuprofessionals
Speaking ,7
Reading 7
Listening 7
Writing 6.5
Yes, they now allow recent graduates but you need to have your credentials ready for nmc applications.
I have shared a sample CV Neuprofessionals sent me some time ago

******UPDATE......

I was able to help her package her application with a nice cover letter which I drafted for the application. After the whole thing, she met me, and was present when I sent the application out using her official email address. Told her to keep me posted.

It was today that I contacted her about any update, that she remembered to inform me that the agency requested for her Skype ID. They also said that, they will get across to her.

Did the little I can for her though she has other options she is pursuing.

NB: I met her when she was preparing for her final exams and took a liking to her due to her calm, respectful and reserved nature. After few weeks of chatting, I asked her out but she stalled it. I told her (after weeks of asking her out) that whatever dicision she takes would not affect the help which I am trying to help her with. I do hope that it pulls through for her.

Like it is always said, relationships just like communication is a 2-way road. When one road is permanently closed, it will no longer work out.
By asking her out, I mean dinner date just to get to know her better.

Happy weekend my people.
Briefing;
My week was cool even if I am still trying to understand oyibo and they are still trying to understand me when speaking but we are getting along. Prep for OSCE is on.
So far I have learnt how to celebrate myself after working so hard at the end if the month. Life is meant to be enjoyed. These people don't joke with their leaves and weekend.
Small gist; a colleague of mine had issues with the toaster and it burnt bread. Before we knew fire alarm went off and maintenance people showed up in less than 5min, the next 5 minutes fire fighters showed up. The maintenance people had to tell them there's no cause for alarm. Me I just dey there dey wonder many things....

While it to dream big, I have to remind us that no society is perfect. You must define yourself everywhere you find yourself. But truth is some might be better than others. If you come here just for money, yes you will get two jobs or more to do but never throw away your life in the process. Don't just move because everyone is moving. Ask your own self why?

Pls check out Envertiz consultancy (envertiz.com). You would not regret it.

I would suggest that folks stay away from surreyandsussex nhs trust. Cost of living around that area is high. Don't be deceived by high cost of leaving allowance.

First of all, we had spent money on mine.
We felt we wouldn't be able to handle to the cost. Moreover, we didn't want to just leave without checking out our destination.
Looking back I would say it probably would have been easier for us to leave at the same time.
.

No matter the cost, i think its mostly more economical for families to move together. I have seen tier 2 dependents denied visa before, thgh a small proportion

IHS fee rose from £200/year just in Dec 2018 and became £400 in February 2019. Now people have started paying £500 per year. Due to the unpredictability of immigration related cost for dependent, i would always suggest families move

If your employer refuses to cover maintenance for family, that puts you under pressure to save for maintenance cost.

Emotional support during those early stages of settling is also invaluable.

IHS is now 1,200 for 3years.
I agree with the emotional support part. Maybe speaking for myself, if family were here my attention would be focused. Don't get me wrong, I am doing well at work, academically and otherwise but there's a place for emotional presence. For being economical, you pay for your dependents whether you are leaving together or not, the only difference is your employer would provide accommodation for at least 2 months which would provide sufficient time for the whole family to be stable. If anyone can afford to leave with family, go ahead. But if you have young children, remember you would have to pay for child care undecided

Update: life continues, I am at peace with myself. This period is for house hunting. I have not been finding it funny sha. It seems like the houses are rented as soon as they are advertised. I have gone to view a new one yesterday and the landlord said about 6persons have viewed the property shocked. I am hopeful I will get good news though cos exams are fast approaching and I need to move out of the free accommodation this month end.
Lesson for the week, our perceptions of of words, expressions and phrases are different, we must be alert to how we are being understood because casual word/action can mean something serious to another person.

1. The part 2 exam is OSCE done in specific centres within the UK, about 3. It has to be done here

2. You don't need experience anymore with nmc but just have your credentials.

3. Yes I do
