Eight members of staff have landed places at university this autumn!
Residents and staff organised a party to say farewell to the individuals that are leaving to pursue a number of different roles in the healthcare industry.
Donna Pierpoint, the manager at Broomgrove Care Home, said: “We’re always keen for members of staff to better themselves but this year has been record – even for us!
“Thankfully we already have staff to take their place, as we have a rolling programme of students joining and leaving us.
“Three of the people leaving are going to medical school, three to nursing, one to midwifery and one to radiology”.
Many students continue to work at Broomgrove Nursing Home and do ‘bank’ shifts in between their studies.
“It really is a win win situation”, Donna added. “The students gain valuable experience and we gain a highly educated and enthusiastic member of staff. Residents love to watch them grow into the amazing people they become by the time they leave us.”
