In fact, it is non-existent.Without a job it is dismally non-existent.

Last year, around this time, I had a notion that I wanted to join the British Army as nurse to see if that could reignite my love for nursing. I've had some experiences since nursing school that have left me scratching my head wondering, "Do I really want to do this for the next 35 years of my life?" and coming up with the answer of "No" every time. This time last year, I would have been able to join the army no problem, but as a nurse I was waiting for my registration to come through.
When I finally got my Nursing PIN I went straight to the recruiting office. My first recruiter conversations was "Have I considered becoming a chef or a Signaller?" went they told me I needed to be a UK resident for 5 years before I became a Nursing Officer. My second was "You can be Nurse Soldier." The third was "The rules have changed and nobody knew it was happening so you need your British citizenship or a visa of indefinite leave to remain. Even though you're part of the Commonwealth." Neither visa or citizenship is within my grasp for the next five years.

Yesterday's blog post made me feel better, today's blog post makes me want to drink a lot of red wine. While you and I are talking over this bottle of wine, please share with me the best career or life advice you've ever received.
