How long have you been working with Thornbury Nursing?
I have been working for Thornbury Nursing since 2019. The week of my first Thornbury shift, I experienced a loved one becoming terminally ill, so I took some time off. The Thornbury team called me often to see how I was doing. I felt so supported and I remember feeling really appreciative of this. Everyone I speak to on the phone is always so helpful and polite. I have never had any issues with communication and support with Thornbury.
What attracted you to join Thornbury Nursing?
I had worked on mental health wards for 8 years as permanent staff. I was attracted to the flexibility and not having to book time off months in advance. The pay rates are the best too! There’s a freeing feeling working for an agency. At times, it can feel like every time you work somewhere new is like the first day at a new job. I feel it’s character building and has definitely built my confidence.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
I enjoy having a positive impact in a client/patient’s recovery journey. When working with clients who are unwell, through their progress, witnessing joy and happiness come back into their lives when things have been difficult is what makes my job really worth it.
How do you feel about being Nurse of the Month?
I feel really proud to be Thornbury’s Nurse of the Month and have told all my friends and family. I really enjoy building therapeutic relationships with families and the people I work with. I couldn’t see myself doing anything else full time. Working with Thornbury Nursing Services has changed my life for the better. I love it.
Congratulations Lauren, you deserve it!
