Nasima was chosen to be Thornbury’s July Nurse of the Month following some fantastic feedback from our team, who highlighted her excellent work since joining us and flexibility in picking up shifts.
We caught up with Nasima on her win, read what she had to say below.
I have been working with Thornbury since March 2023.
I work full-time as an NHS employee but I heard a lot of great things about working agency shifts with Thornbury, including great benefits. Despite my hesitation to work with agencies (Thornbury was my first agency), I gave it a try. The joining process was easy and I completed the registration very quickly. Initially, I was determined to just do one shift to see what it was like. I worked my very first agency shift on Mother’s Day. The team I worked with were so stretched and thankful for my presence. I realised that I have free time on my hands which could be spent helping clients like these.
Also, the pay rates are attractive and I am able to pick shifts up around the country without hesitation as they also pay for travel expenses.
I enjoy nursing as a whole and Thornbury allows me to be just that – a nurse helping individuals and families in their day-to-day routine, and I can give all my attention to my patients when I’m on shift. It may sound cliche, but nursing is what I always imagined myself doing as a younger child.
I didn’t realise there was such a thing as ‘Nurse of the Month’ with Thornbury – what a pleasant surprise! I knew of other benefits, but this really was unexpected. I feel appreciated. Thank you to the team for thinking of me. I work hard and have always been accommodating to my patients and my team, and it feels great to be appreciated.
Congratulations Nasima, you deserve it!
