Jess Foster, who lives in Poringland, has worked as a nurse at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) for eight months after completing a degree at the University of East Anglia.

She said: “My grandmother was a nurse and I heard a lot about it through her and I did a lot of volunteering with children. I always wanted to go into a profession where I was helping other people and working with people from different backgrounds and making a positive difference.

“Every day is different. You are always learning and making a positive difference to the lives of children and families and working in a brilliant team of kind and caring professionals.

“My advice to anyone considering a career in nursing is to persevere, work hard and see the positives in everything you do.”
