Femin Joseph came from India - via Saudi Arabia - to work at the James Paget Hospital in Gorleston, where she is a staff nurse.
She said the cultural changes between the three places were very different, but she had always wanted to work in the medical field.
She said: “Completing my bachelors in nursing in New Delhi, I thought it would be tough but once you are in you really enjoy it – it is very fulfilling. The feeling of satisfaction you get when you help someone makes it worthwhile.”
Nursing had changed for Femin, who added: “In general, even from my training as a student in 2007, there is different equipment, documentation is better and medicine is more evidence based.”
She said: “It is a good job, it can offer flexible working and it is a good profession. Nurses will always be needed – the day I graduated I got a job, which can’t be said for all professions, and there are lots opportunities.”
