Let’s dive into Godwin’s experiences in healthcare and his journey with Florence.

1. How long have you been in healthcare, Godwin?

I have been a nurse for five years.

I became a registered nurse in 2018. Since then, I’ve had the privilege of practicing in various settings, including elderly care, surgery and hospital emergency departments.

My favourite part about being a nurse is being able to assist people, whether they’re sick or well, in ways that positively impact their health.

Florence has been incredibly supportive. The flexibility in shifts and the instant pay options have truly enhanced my work experience.

4. What features do you find useful in the Florence app?

Yes, indeed! The timely shift reminders are always handy, ensuring I’m consistently on track. However, the Instant Pay option holds a special place for me—it’s just so convenient.

5. What advice would you give care professionals considering joining Florence?

I’d say, dive right in! You’ll be thankful for the decision. Florence Academy is a standout feature—it means you’re always up-to-date with your skills even as you work. This unique blend of practical experience and continuous learning is what makes Florence stand out.

6. Godwin, what’s the one thing you wish everyone understood about your role as a nurse?

A: It’s pivotal for people to grasp that in nursing, no two shifts are identical. There’s always a need to be primed and ready to deliver high-quality care, irrespective of the situation’s complexity.
