Community Nurse of the Year, Christine.

Congratulations Christine, our Nurse of the Year nominated by the community team. We caught up with Christine on her win.

How long have you been working with Thornbury?

I joined TNS at the beginning of the year, it was when I was moving to a new house. Having small children and trying to accommodate the move, I needed the flexibility which TNS has provided.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

My nursing background has always been hospital work and community care at home was a whole new world for me. Coming into a client’s home to provide nursing care and support tailored to their personal needs,  it couldn’t have been any more comforting and rewarding. 

How do you feel about being the Nurse of the year?

Being nominated to be TNS nurse of the year is such an honour. Being grateful is an understatement for this wonderful recognition. 

What do you love about being a nurse?

Nursing hasn’t just been an occupation for me, it is a big part of who I am. Being able to support and provide care for those in need has always been my passion. Those moments when you’ve supported them during their critical hours to their route to recovery, seeing the impact of your contribution to that recovery is rewarding to say the least. 

What made you continue to work during the pandemic? 

Pandemic or not, I am a nurse. This is my passion and my profession. Once again, thank you for this nomination, in which I am still in awe of.
