Crushsugar pls I have a silly question.
Why are their roads always clean? is it that they don't have sand or people don't throw things on the ground

Lol
It is the tarred/tiled roads first of all, I have not seen an untarred street that means less sand. They have waste bins everywhere so things are not trashed carelessly.

Congratulations on your new level.

I'll like to know the advantages a nurse licensed in an area of specialty( ICU) has over a nurse with only a diploma. And how possible is it to be trained in an area of specialty over there.
Thank you.

My ward experience
Resumption was 7am unlike our conventional 8
Handing over information have already been printed out and handed to all nurses and HCA taking over.
After handing over, I was taken round and put in a team.
Every documentation is on computer.
9am nurse in charge said I should go for break (this is the first time I am hearing break in more than 7yrs of practice), I was like, I don't want, she said I must go and take coffee or something. That's how I went to sit and chat a bit in the room .
I later realized that I have access to bread,tea or coffee and spread during that break.
Of course, another break starts by 12(lunch) after which our training continued.
Do I have any regrets so far?
No
I only miss swallow smiley

Thanks so much for this thread. Do they serve meals when on duty or nurses have to buy or bring from home. Then what shifts do nurses run over there. Thank you

I love your post and I am following. It is good work that you are doing here. Helping others out. Keep it up.

I'll be visiting Manchester in October ending. I will like to know what the weather will be like when that time comes.

I wish you success in your OSCE.

No meals are not served on duty but you have breaks to eat. Either bring your home cooked meals or buy at the canteen.
Your shifts depends on what you want. It can be long days 12 hour shifts for 3 days a week or short days 7.5 hour shifts for 5days a week.

With my little experience they pay better with specialties but sometimes with consideration to years of experience. You'll still do the adult nursing CBT and OSCE.
You can always get training opportunities to strengthen yourself in your area.

That's why they check the weather forecast daily with some surprises though. Temperature where I am and not close to the sea is between 20-11° C which is ok for them but we have to be on sweaters and jackets.
For me, let winter hold it peace small, I never adapt finish.

Re: Adventures Of A UK Bound Nurse by crushsugar: 5:15pm On Aug 18
My weekend experience:
I went to a nearby town to view an apartment and as usual, I took my guide: Google map. Got to the town and followed my map and it told me I had arrived but this was the hospital, I asked a staff who told me the street is just behind but he doesn't know the way there. Na so I dey ask dey go, ended up getting into a particular close, I was asking the man I met when his dog came out to greet me... lol. I was practically shivering and the man reassured me, the dog just dey lick my leg and I was just stiff. The man asked me if I was still afraid, I said yes, he asked the dog to go in and continued giving me directions. I felt bad though because dogs are their family members and the dog was just being nice. If it was small, I guess I would have managed but this is big and black, and it's the closest I have ever been to a dog all my life. I pray for a better font next time, but for now, I still fear dogs. By the way, I couldn't view the apartment, the shakara with houses too much because population of persons looking for accommodation is on the high side. This is not the first time it is happening. Any advice from experts are welcome.

Re: Adventures Of A UK Bound Nurse by famzynet: 7:43pm On Aug 19
Please keep your post rolling with more pics. I look forward to seeing pics at Man Utd ground and Ethihad stadium. I know you are busy with studies but just steal a day to visit those places. Those two places easily come to mind when Manchester is mentioned.
