Best graduating nurse driven by love for profession
After losing her father to a tragic motorcycle accident, in which he was decapitated, Osiola Gilbert-Chilcott watched her mother go to work to support her seven children. Sometimes she even accompanied her mother to work, and it was during those visits that she was inspired to follow her mother’s footsteps and enter the nursing profession.
Her mother, Avril Culley, spent 22 years as a nursing assistant as she was unable to further her studies due to her commitment to her children but the drive and passion with which she worked during those years not only inspired Gilbert-Chilcott but all three of her daughters to become nurses.
Gilbert-Chilcott has been in the profession for the past seven years and always having the drive to reach the pinnacle of her profession, she was not satisfied with just becoming a registered nurse. She has recently completed a degree in nursing at the University of Guyana, graduating at the top of her class and winning awards for best research and best innovation project.
