00:00:06,960 --> 00:00:11,480

I decided to come work in the UK

because of the career progression

00:00:11,480 --> 00:00:16,200

being offered to us nurses,

and I chose CUH specifically

00:00:16,200 --> 00:00:20,200

because it's one of the largest

teaching hospitals here in the UK.

00:00:20,880 --> 00:00:24,880

I started back in the Philippines,

qualified back in 2010.

00:00:25,200 --> 00:00:30,600

I have experience in the medical

surgical wards and also ICU experience

00:00:31,000 --> 00:00:35,640

and from then on, I explored my career

00:00:36,000 --> 00:00:42,960

as a home care nurse in the UAE, and I'm here

now in the UK as one of the dementia ward nurses.

00:00:43,720 --> 00:00:48,240

There are a lot of career opportunities

available here compared to back home.

00:00:48,680 --> 00:00:52,280

We have a lot of training

and courses that you can take

00:00:52,280 --> 00:00:56,080

and the hospital is very encouraging

and supportive with that.

00:00:56,080 --> 00:01:01,960

The very thing that I like most about CUH is

that the staff are really friendly, accommodating

00:01:01,960 --> 00:01:09,240

and supportive, and Cambridge itself is a and nice,

friendly, peaceful environment to live in.

00:01:09,960 --> 00:01:14,200

If they're thinking about coming

to CUH, I would really encourage you,

00:01:14,600 --> 00:01:20,840

the benefits outweighs the risk and I have

been really supported by my colleagues

00:01:20,840 --> 00:01:25,800

and it has been one of the best decisions that

I have made for my career and for my family.
