Morning from me here in New Zealand Emslou .

Most of us on British Expats are British living somewhere or another so an x is perfectly normal to most of us. I doubt any of us are really confused or offended so please do not worry about this little thing.

It was just something being made out of nothing but which is now causing thread drift away from your queries.

People.
This lady is asking for help, info & guidance not pointless criticism and tasteless comments .

You could look at your transferable skills and maybe get a job with an insurance company in disability management.

I was talking to a RN yesterday who is also a qualified Financial Adviser. I think her patients are shall we say of the older variety and so many had issues due to both medical costs and end of life estate planning etc it seemed a natural combination.

You have the biggie covered, a way to get here so what do you want to do do is more a career planning issue.

I have been working since April this year in an acute trauma surgical orthopaedic ward and I will be starting gynae ward soon. My husband was born is the USA he has US connections aunties and uncles. We both want to move over with our two girls. (To Wisconsin)
He doesn't have a problem as he is american , our girls have dual nationality, he is able to move over and stay with his uncle until he sorts out car, rental etc.
I have read that it will be difficult for me to move and work as a nurse with all the exams etc plus I know I have no theory in maternity and paeds and obstetrics. I don't mind going over and not working as a nurse as long as I can get a well paid job doing something!! Any ideas what to do ? If I do go over as a nurse which is ideal what the heck do I have to do to obtain that theory and practice in those fields I am missing??
thanks so much in advance 😘
If starting to work right away is important you might look into getting certified as an LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) until you can get your RN credentials. Pay is more than unskilled jobs and would be good experience for future RN career. Your employer may even pay for the courses needed to get your RN.

LPN is getting deprecated. Hard to find a job.

I think it depends on area of the country and urban or rural hospital. Many American RN’s have used it as a path to further training.
In the few rural TN hospitals I have worked as a Pharmacist LPN’ s were an important part of the nursing staff. I retired in 2012 so things may have changed somewhat.

You might want to take a look at the AllNurses forum. There was some talk there, a while ago, about KCLH providing some courses that would make up for deficits in Peds,Obs etc. for UK Registered Nurses wanting to register in the US.
