This weekend marks International Nurses' Day, we celebrate the diverse range of people who become nurses. Some are from overseas, others are newly qualified, and some opted for nursing as a total career change. They all have one thing in common - their dedication to nursing.

Renan Olisco

Originally from the Philippines and now a deputy ward manager

"I've been a practicing nurse since qualifying in the Philippines in 2011. Nurses over there aren't well compensated and I saw the UK as a platform for me to practice my profession and develop my skills as well. I've been working at Southend since June 2017 and after almost a year of being a staff nurse I was offered promotion to deputy ward manager, the rest is history.

"I'm really well supported in my role. All the staff, doctors, HCAs, kitchen staff, really make you feel part of a team here, we are a family."
