Welcome to our new nurses

Strode Park Foundation has welcomed eight new nurses from across the world to work in its 24-hour nursing and neuro-rehab service in Herne.

Strode Park House, which is a 55-bed home for 40 permanent residents and up to 15 short-term guests, saw its first cohort of four overseas nurses arrive in September last year.

Emmanuel, Gertrude, Sherri and Monica, who come from Ghana, Nigeria and Barbados, are all very experienced and have been busy completing their OSCE training.

OSCE (objective structured clinical examination) is required to ensure competency and confidence in applying nursing knowledge to the clinical environment safely and effectively in the UK.

The latest group of another four nurses arrived in the UK over the Christmas and New Year period. Emma, Divine, Euphemia and Erica are from Zambia and Nigeria.

Director of Care (Nursing and Therapy), John Cotterill, said: “I greatly admire Strode Park House’s new nurse colleagues who have each and all been very courageous in making the move to England; a new job, a new home, a new culture and very different weather! It has been a delight to welcome and support them through their training and exams, and a pleasure and privilege to help them to adjust to life in England. The residents and the staff team in Strode Park House are already benefitting from this recent strengthening of the nursing team. Strode Park will continue with its ongoing programme of appreciation, support and professional development for all our Registered Nurses.”
