Nicole, Staff Nurse

Nicole - life story 184x260It has been a 360 degree change for me, from dealing with babies back at home, to providing care to adults now.

In the Philippines, I was a delivery room nurse and neonatal intensive care nurse for six years and as an internationally educated nurse, I had to register as an adult nurse following NMC (Nursing and Midwifery Council) protocol.

The hospital has been extremely supportive of my career growth and the transition that came with it.

They have provided us with OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Examination) preparation classes, enrichment classes and regular training updates, all of which are instrumental in making us effective nurses.

The work I do in GWH has been a humbling and a rewarding experience.

Every time a patient and their family express their gratitude and appreciation of the care I have provided them with makes all of this worthwhile.

It is a validation when we get appreciated.

GWH not only makes a difference within the hospital premises but the institution also spearheads various outreach programmes that cater to the entire Wiltshire area.

They do have regular updates on that on social media.

It makes me proud to be a part of an institution that stays true to its ideals of being a forward thinker and an agent of change.

Great People. Great Place. Great Western Hospitals.
