May Nurse of the Month – Amanda
At WESolutions, we believe our responsibilities do not end once we’ve helped an amazing nurse secure a new role. Our goal is to build long-lasting relationships that go above and beyond that. We’re committed to understanding the hopes, dreams and aspirations of the people we work with so they can build the career (and life) they want.
Our Nurse of the Month initiative is designed to highlight the journey, achievements and experiences of some of the most talented nurses we’ve had the opportunity to work with. So now, it gives us great pleasure to introduce May’s Nurse of the Month, Amanda.
Amanda is the Deputy Manager of a Care Home in Surrey. Nursing runs in Amanda’s family and she was inspired to start her studies after watching her aunt care for her with such compassion. Here at WESolutions, our goal is to connect dedicated healthcare professionals like Amanda with the workplaces (and patients) who need them the most.

Get to know Amanda
Q: When did you realise that a career in nursing was right for you? Was there a particular moment in your life?
A: For me, the moment came after battling my own asthma attacks and watching my aunt care for me. Watching her use her nursing experience made me realise that I needed to help and support people just like me who may be struggling with certain health conditions.
Q: What was your journey like in securing a role through WESolutions?
A: My journey of securing a role through WESolutions was very smooth and stress-free. Working with this very competent team was a blessing because they were always there to support me and celebrate my achievements. Even after landing in the UK, they still watched out for me. I couldn’t have chosen a better recruitment team. Thank you, guys.
Q: What advice would you give to young people considering a career in nursing?
A: My honest advice is to do it from your heart cause because that’s where you’ll find the love and compassion to help people. If you don’t have a love for the profession, I’d say do not take it up.
Q: Do you have any standout memories/funny/interesting stories from your career as a nurse?
A: My standout memory was the day I graduated from nursing school. That was a big thing for me – knowing I was able to fully launch into my profession and do what I had a passion for.
Q: If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?
A: If I could have one superpower it would be to be able to heal all sicknesses and stop people from suffering.
