Hey guys, I have got the ticket for my AUS RN Journey after getting OET B, the most important part in my life.
I am on the cross road of my life, eventually, I chose to do the hard way. I know my life will be up side down in this mysterious island in the south.
Its said we cant change the past but we can create the future.
This post will update regularly till I work as an RN officially in Australia.
Time Frame for my journey
Hope I will reveal the good news soon.
Just want to quickly record the history of the day for me.
I gave a notice of resignation to my manager, the biggest step for my RN road.
I truly wish this will be worth it.
Jess chose to fly, and starting to fly.
