I'm using my friends log as mine has not yet registered. I'm a qualified nurse in the QARANC and iam currently in cyprus which is a volunteer post. But i really hate my job here. We dont see many patients so i spend alot of time conducting my secondary duty as equipment manager. i have asked to do ITU but the I have been told by the education advisor that i will not be considered untill 2011 when iam no longer required in cyprus. Subsquently i have signed off. my original application was deined because thaye said i had to serve four years three months even though i was qualified prior to joining. I have now put my application in again. I have requested to go back to the U.K. for my last six months but i have been told i'm not entiled to so !!! I also dont understand how they can deploy people here tfor the length they do because its a skill fade !!! Also It became evident to me after i first applied to to sign of the first time that my earliest exit dates had been changed on JPA to increase my period of service. i wouldnt mind if i enjoyed my job but i hate it, i want to be a nurse and look after people not equipment.
