First shift as an agency nurse

Written by Sara Oktemgil on 16/07/2020

My First Shift...with Lyndsey R.

One of our newest nurses, Lyndsey R. started working with us in April 2020, here is how she got on...

"I registered with the agency at the beginning of lockdown. A colleague in my current post recommended them. I cannot praise them enough. The initial registration process was simple and I was helped every step of the way. The advisors were all so friendly and accommodating. Once compliant, I booked a shift at Wycombe Hospital. I was nervous but couldn’t have been more welcomed by the staff. The shift was great and I then became familiar with the nurse app to book my shifts myself. It shows exactly what’s available and where - very user friendly. Couldn’t be happier the agency then would find out the type of ward for me and I was soon fit tested for PPE. Done lots of shifts now and hoping for many more in the future."

My First Shift...with Alison L.

Alison started with us in University College London Hospital in April and she describes how she first started with us...

"As a new nurse starting with Health Professionals I have found the team helpful, inclusive and obliging. To prepare for my first shift, I received all the documentation and necessary briefing in a timely manner. Moreover, any questions/concerns I had were met with experience and knowledge throughout the application process. I would recommend any other potential nurses to join the team and be rewarded with an array of opportunities and a flexible work/life balance!"
