• It is my dream to live in London UK someday! But how could I accomplish this dream?

    Best answer: Your plan can work as we sometimes have a shortage of nurses over here, and a US Degree in nursing would be accepted. You may face an aptitude test before being offered employment though. But when nurses are not in short supply your skills will not be required.

    Best answer: Your plan can work as we sometimes have a shortage of nurses over here, and a US Degree in nursing would be accepted. You may face an aptitude test before being offered employment though.

    But when nurses are not in short supply your skills will not be required. That could prevent you emigrating here. or if you are employed on a working Visa then when your Visa expires you may be required to return home.

    You have a greater chance if you do a bit of research into the UKs NHS when you are ready to start your nursing studies to see which areas of nursing are in demand. Specialisms are almost always a safe bet, especially if they're in less popular fields such as mental health, psychogeriatrics, or stoma care. Higher skilled nurses can also usually find and retain their jobs, such as intensive care. Higher skilled paramedics are also a pretty safe bet as they're always in demand and cost a lot to train, so if you arrive ready-skilled, ready trained, and experienced then it shouldn't be any problem.

    As for where you live, you can expect to have to flatshare/house-share or to rent somewhere in a cheaper area such as in the outer London boroughs. Some boroughs and housing associations do offer subsidised "key worker" housing for people like police, fire service, healthcare providers, teachers, social workers and similar.

    And as with any emigration, the more money you can save before you arrive, the better.

  • How could a British person tell me if I’m an American?

    Best answer: Clothing maybe, hair style maybe. There's a distinctive "British look" and a distinctive "American look" but a great many people fall between.

  • One week in London?

    My husband and I are planning a trip to London this fall. We have one week (technically 5 actual days, 2 are travel days) there and I was wondering if we should take time to go to Paris as well. I want to make the most of our time there, but I don't want us to be so rushed that we don't actually enjoy it.

    Hi, this may be a stupid question, but I m going to London in a few weeks with my family (3 people) and we can t figure out how much money we should take. The hotel and the plane tickets are already paid for, so all we re gonna spend the money on is food, public transport, entry fees and occasionally souvenirs and stuff. So, what is the perfect amount you would recommend? We ll stay there a week and we are not huge spenders. Thank you so much for your answers, my dad was usually the one who handled the money, but as this is the first vacation without him, we re quite helpless and will appreciate any help.

  • Is wearing a hat compulsory at an English wedding?

    Best answer: Nothing is compulsory.
    It all depends where the wedding is. If it's in a church then it's considered proper for a woman to cover her hair when in church, much like it is in Italy.
