One of England’s most senior nurses who worked her way up after starting her career as a cleaner has received an honorary doctorate from the University of Salford.
The doctorate was awarded to deputy chief nursing officer Hilary Garratt in recognition of her ‘inspirational and crucial’ work in Salford, where she is resident.
Ms Garratt is a registered nurse and health visitor with 36 years’ experience in clinical, public health and executive leadership roles in the NHS. 'It has been, and continues to be, a real privilege to work as a nurse,’ said Ms Garratt. 'You often work with people when they are at their most vulnerable, and not only does it give a true sense of purpose to one’s career, but it helps shape you both as a professional and as a person as you learn and develop, and that is such a special privilege,’ she added.

Throughout her career, Galina Todorova has never stopped learning. Galina has been an Registered Nurse (RN) for 15 years and started working at Bridgepoint in 2006. Although her work schedule and her family have kept her busy, she went back to school and completed her Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2011. “I wanted to expand my knowledge to continue challenging myself. And I love studying,” she says.
Growing up in Bulgaria, Galina was drawn to a career in nursing from a young age. “When deciding on a profession I realized that helping people would give me the most satisfaction. In the nursing profession, the scope of practice was expanding and I would be able to specialize and continue learning.” In addition to completing her degree, Galina has obtained certification in Gerontological Nursing from the Canadian Nurses’ Association. Most recently, she has studied to become a Diabetes Educator, taking courses and completing exams to earn certification from the Canadian Diabetes Educator Certification Board.
Galina hopes to pursue more formal education in the future. In the meantime she says she’s always finding opportunities to learn new things. “I’ll never stop learning because life is about learning every day.”
Admittedly I used to think using essential oils for emotions was kind of a joke. ⠀
How could an OIL help so much!? 🤷♀️ ⠀
Now I know there is so much science behind essential oils + the brain + our emotions. I use emotional oils DAILY, they support me 💜⠀
Yesterday was a big day for me emotionally, I used: ⠀
▪️Valor for all things confidence ⠀
▪️Envision to guide me for future goals ⠀
▪️Highest Potential to remind me what I am capable of⠀
Do you have a fav emotional oil? 👇

I don’t talk about nursing very often. .
Because as a profession, nurses can be really good at complaining. They can be good at bragging about all the crap (literally and figuratively 💩) they have to deal with. Nurses compare themselves to others. And we all know they are smart. .
Confession: I’ve done all of that ^^
And the truth is...I love being a nurse. And I love working in the recovery room! My day is filled with variety. I take care of old people, young people, super sick or very healthy, sometimes they are with me for my whole shift, sometimes 30 minutes. And I love being there for these vulnerable patients. Surgery is scary. And I love being the first face they see when they wake up. ☺️
