“I used to work as a Validation Engineer in the pharmaceuticals industry. My days were spent dealing more with machines than people and that made me want to look for a more meaningful career.
So I decided to take the leap to pursue a career in nursing. My wife, who used to be a nurse, was fully supportive despite us having a two-year-old son and a second child on the way.
Balancing studies and family responsibilities was not easy. Being a full-time student also meant that I had to make adjustments to manage our family finances. But with the support of my family and friends, I was able to make the leap. Today, I feel immense fulfilment being part of patients’ recovery journey.”
