February Nurse of the Month – Nelvin
At WESolutions, we strive to build long-lasting relationships with all the talented nurses we have worked with even after helping them secure a new role. Since our establishment, we have been committed to understanding the ambitions, dreams, and choices of these people and we are proud to be a part of their careers (and life).
Our Nurse of the Month initiative is designed to highlight the journey, achievements, and experiences of some of the most dedicated nurses we have had the pleasure of assisting to identify their dream jobs. Without further ado, we would like to introduce February’s Nurse of the Month, Nelvin.
Nelvin has always stood out as a dedicated and extremely professional nurse. Since arriving in the UK, he has become an asset to the Care Home that he’s attached in at Scotland. We are incredibly proud of him and his accomplishments despite being new to the country.
The sky is the limit for you, Nelvin!

Q: When did you realise that a career in nursing was right for you? Was there a particular moment in your life?
A: I always knew I wanted to help people. So, I prayed to God to make me his instrument to save lives.
Later on in my career, I realised that nursing was right for me when I had two patients needing CPR at the same time. I was there to help revive them, and both survived and were then transferred to the Intensive Care Unit. It was a tiring but fulfilling day because as a nurse it is our role to provide quality and satisfactory care for the patients.
Q: What was your journey like in securing a role through WESolutions?
A: WESolutions is a great, professional & friendly team! Super helpful and always available to speak to. They helped me find my dream job and were so attentive throughout the whole process. They stood with me from the start of my application until I arrived in Scotland with my wife, and even after that. The whole process of relocating to the UK was made easy from the start to finish, thanks to WESolutions!
Q: What advice would you give to young people considering a career in nursing?
A: My advice to young people considering a career in nursing would be, to ask yourself first why you want to become a nurse. Knowing your “why” will serve as a huge motivator to strive harder and conquer any difficulties or challenges you face in your career.
Q: Do you have any standout memories/funny/interesting stories from your career as a nurse?
A: One memorable moment for me was when I was assigned to help the Afghan community. We had to ensure they were fit to travel to other countries because most of them had wounds, bruises, hematoma, mental illness, and trauma because of the recent events that unfolded in their country.
I was so touched when one of the Afghan families told us, “Thank you so much for helping us, and for showing us that we are still loved.” That was such an emotional moment, I wanted to cry, but I held back my tears to maintain professionalism. It’s a blessing to be a nurse.
Q: If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?
A: To have more wisdom. As a nurse, our role is to save lives and hence, it is very crucial that we have good judgment and knowledge to act according to what we think is right for the wellbeing of our patients.
