I came to Lakes College in 2010 to study on the Access to Higher Education course. Before coming to college, I’d always aspired to be a nurse having worked as a carer in a local nursing home. After graduating, I applied for a job at Great Ormond Street Hospital as a newly qualified nurse in the rotation programme, and was selected from 500 applicants to fill one of just 20 positions. I’ll be carrying out general nursing duties in three clinical areas, which I hope to be surgery, oncology and intensive care.
