Rhoda was a young girl in school when a personal experience led her to realise she wanted to become a nurse. She answered her calling and studied nursing while living in Africa.
GET TO KNOW RHODA
When did you realise that a career in nursing was right for you? Was there a particular moment of inspiration in your life?
Yes, my little brother was very ill, so I stayed with him while he was in hospital until he recovered. My parents had to work, so I watched the nurses care for my brother, and I was inspired by the care they gave him.
What was your journey like in securing a role through WE Solutions?
WESolutions’ process was so fast, and they helped to make my journey very smooth. They answered all the questions that I had, helped me find a good job and made relocating easier for me. I was in the UK in the shortest time possible.
What advice would you give to young people considering a career in nursing?
Nursing is a game-changer and a rewarding career. Apart from being the source of your daily bread – how you earn a living – you have the chance to appreciate life when you see how fragile it can sometimes be.
Do you have any standout memories or funny/interesting stories from your career as a nurse?
I have plenty of touching memories. I nursed my grandmother in her final days, and she was over 110 years old! It was very satisfying to be there for her and a part of her life. She lived such an interesting, fulfilled life with family.
While working in maternity in Kenya and Namibia, many newborn babies have gone through my hands. I had the honour of caring for them in their first few days. Life is a precious thing, which I see on a daily basis, so I do my job with passion.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?
If I could have a superpower, I would want to make sure that no one gets sick, or if they did, I would always be able to heal their sickness.
