Chris Carey

"I enrolled on to the Level 3 Health and Social Care course in 2014 at Middlesbrough College because I wanted to dedicate my career to helping people of ill health.

Middlesbrough College offers loads of great opportunities, such as visits outside and working in a mock hospital ward. This gave me more of a passion to follow my dream, whilst also challenging me to learn the theory behind my practice.

Working with a diverse group of tutors allowed me to understand healthcare from a variety of backgrounds. I felt confident going forward and choosing to study a nursing degree at university.

I am now in my final year of adult nursing and in the future I plan to specialise in diabetes or oncology and grasp new opportunities made available to me through this wonderful profession!"
