October Nurse of the Month – Gladys
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 October’s Nurse of the Month, Gladys.
Gladys discovered her own potential as a Nurse when she began studying and has felt that nursing has placed her in a position to be courageous, firm and ready to face any challenges life could throw at her.
As a Registered Nurse in Banbury, Gladys is well-loved by her colleagues and patients. We’re so proud of everything she has achieved.

Q: When did you realise that a career in nursing was right for you? Was there a particular moment in your life?
A: I fell in love with nursing because of the white uniforms at first – I admired the Nurses I grew up seeing but I soon discovered that there is so much more to it than that. When I started practising, I was then able to help those in need of health services and be a part of contributing to a healthy society.
Q: What was your journey like in securing a role through WESolutions?
A: WESolutions offered me timely support throughout the process, from our initial conversation to relocating to the UK. As a Zambian Registered Nurse, I expected everything to take much longer than it did but with WESolutions backing me, it was only four months. I am eternally grateful for their amazing communication and support.
Q: What advice would you give to young people considering a career in nursing?
A: I would say to be ready to face any challenges and work with an open mind, putting the interest of the patients first, always.
Q: Do you have any standout memories/funny/interesting stories from your career as a nurse?
A: I have so many to mention, but the greatest is seeing a smile on my patient’s face no matter the situation.
Q: If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?
A: The ability to detect patients’ nursing problems and act within a short period of time to achieve their health goals.
