You're welcome chief.

Could you please recommend to me schools that offer M.Sc Adult Nursing?

All the ones I've seen so far offer them only to home students. Thanks.
Let me ask a friend who is more knowledgeable about their schools here.
Any Geographical preference?

I think it's possible to swap, but to get someone to swap with is the issue. Wish you goodluck.

I love the village life.
It is time to plant the roses. I need to re-populate the garden.
First bare root rose stem was planted few days ago, doing well for now.

I will say, don't go over the required weight, so that you don't have to be moving and opening your luggage anyhow at the airport in Nigeria.
Secondly, if there is an opportunity to wrap your luggage with the cellophane wrap at the airport, use it.
Personally, I don't have any seat preference.
Dress appropriately, be weather smart.

Ok, it's ok sha since its roses u are planting and not Vegetables.
Maybe when u find time in the spring, try to plant Vegetables around spring so u can enjoy them in the summer. Our last summer yield was really a lot. I even got my wife interested in gardening after she saw how much veges, we could harvest. It was fun.
Ofcos, do what u think is best sha. I am just saying.

Make sure you fix the bag tags visibly .

If you can look around and buy stickers with "London" or similar on it and paste it where it is still visible after wrapping. Or place it on top of the cellophane wrap.
This is to help the cargo handlers sort out your bag, like suspect a mistake if they sight your bag with France bound bags when its mostly London stickers on your bag.
Hope that helps. I have never lost my checked in luggage despite always transiting on my trips

Do you care to share, the types of vegetables and how to grow them.

How to grow, lol. Am just learning as I go ooh. Am no expert gardener but my wifey now calls me a farmer grin grin grin. Na wah ooh, just cos I managed to plant tomatoes and zucchini grin grin
U could try those ones that grow fast and tolerate early cold but do very well warmer temp. I would say tomatoes, pepper, Paprika, zucchini, eggplant. Then u could also try herbs Basil, rosemary, Petersilie, Dill, Oregano. Those herbs are great when u use them fresh to spice meat and fish. We had so much fun grilling with them at the heart of summer.
Like I said, I am no expert but learning as I go. So people with more advanced information here could also give their input

Hi Soknown,

Another question for you please. At what point did you resign from your previous workplace after getting an offer. There is currently a 3 months notice period, is it advisable to resign immediately or wait till a new COS is issued, visa is applied and a approval is received from home office before tendering an official resignation to a current employer? It seems the current employers gets notified once a new COS is issued by a new employer? Also i read somewhere u mentioned that dependents do not need to apply with the main applicant when changing jobs within the country, does this still stand? Kindly advise.

SaSH is a very lovely place to work. There is openness and good communication from top to bottom.
I can't count the numbers of time that I have met Michael Wilson CBE Chief Executive on the corridor and he greeted with a very big smile. Or Jane Dickson, the Chief Nurse holding the door for you to pass or Nicola Shopland, Assistant Chief, coming to the ward to check how you fare.
A couple of colleagues in my cohort are now Band 6, so there is opportunity for growth.
There are a lot of training to acquaint you with SaSH processes, finally it is a CQC rated - OUTSTANDING. Trust. One of 9 trust so rated in the UK.
I left because the neighbourhood is very expensive and it didn't fit into my long term plan.
@Symbae, what say you?
