Joe Smith, who lives in Norwich, has worked as a nurse for eight years after completing a degree in paediatric nursing at the University of East Anglia.
He said: 'I wanted to work with children and there is more career progression in nursing. I wanted to do a job that you can get a lot out of and give a lot back.
'I have seen children go through their treatment, get to the end of their treatment, and get back to their normal lives. That is really rewarding.
'There is still good career progression and I am doing an advanced nurse practitioner course at the moment.
'People looking at a career in nursing need to be aware that it can be stressful at times, but it is also really rewarding.'
