Q: When did you realise that a career in nursing was right for you? Was there a particular moment in your life?
A: It was when my grandmother was sick and I had to visit her in the hospital. I always wished I knew how to help her, and what was going on so that I could help take care of her. I saw the nurses and the doctors offering care and support, and I instantly knew that I wanted to be a part of such a team one day.
Q: What was your journey like in securing a role through WESolutions?
A: To be honest, I never expected the process to go as quickly as it did. I was given advice on places to start when migrating, to meet my goals. Following some assistance with creating my resume, I got my first interview within a week of speaking to WESolutions. I was well prepared for the interview and was offered the job a few days afterwards with the sweetest relocation package ever. I got help to set up my NMC online, assistance with preparing for my CBT and my visa application from the fantastic team at WESolutions.
Q: What advice would you give to young people considering a career in nursing?
A: Nursing might not be all that you envision it to be, but never let that diminish your passion. To all who are currently studying hard for their degree; better days are ahead. If you’re working hard and “ends nah meet”; just remember there are better and brighter days ahead. Opportunities are there and WESolutions is a provider of such opportunities.
Q: Do you have any standout memories/funny/interesting stories from your career as a nurse?
A: The memory that stands out the most during my career was how accomplished I felt once I received my registration certificate and pin in Jamaica. And of course, when I got my first job. A funny memory is one I have of my final year in nursing school when I was assigned to the emergency department. My batch mates and I decided to do Beta-HCGs and I found out I was pregnant. So, I graduated that November with a new-born baby!
Q: If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?
A: My superpower would be to believe and have utmost confidence in myself , so that others, especially my family, can believe in me to instil positivity among others.
