Before I trained as a nurse, my first J.O.B was that of a miner in one of the world’s large mining countries, #Zambia in Mufulira town, copper belt region.
In 1903 joined the mining sector, started as a work man,transporting materials from the store rooms,this was underground to the developing sites(where miners drill the rocks to extract copper ore). It was a tough job for a young man like me,straight from high school.
That was the first stage in mining hierarchy. If you proved to the mining officials that you were strong and capable, then you will be moved to the drilling team as a spanner man, assisting to hold and stabilize the drilling rod from the drilling machine unto hard rock.
I performed that job quite well for six months, then I was promoted to a higher position,machine man. This entailed you were more responsible ensuring that 32 holes were drilled on time so that the “bass man”(explosive technician) could come and insert the explosives into the 32 holes in readiness to detonate them and break up the rock into smaller segments, ready to be conveyed to surface for processing.
It was an interesting experience for me. I knew how copper was extracted from underground to the surface and later exported to other countries. Zambia was then very rich because of copper mining.
After working for three years,in 1986 I applied for a nursing course and was accepted at Mufulira School of Nursing. I was one of the first 6 male nurses to be trained at Ronald Ross Hospital.
I graduated in 1989, started working at Kalulushi Mine Hospital as a registered male nurse, Copperbelt Region.
I rose through ranks up to a Nursing Officer level, In Charge of Male Ward. Voted as best Manager,Emergency department, Kalulushi mine hospital.
In 1992, I was transferred to Plant site Clinic in the same capacity to treat and refer injured miners to the hospital.
After 2 years at Plant Site Clinic, I was transferred to Chambishi mine clinic in the same capacity. Saved many lives from shock, crush injuries,chemical burns and minor injuries and the rest… Won safety award in 2001.
In 2003, I migrated to New Zealand and started working in bigger hospitals such as Auckland City Hospital. Later I moved to Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand.I enrolled to study masters degree at Victoria University of Wellington in order to up skill my skills to meet international standards. This is a five years program, with a lot of assignments and exams. In 2013, I graduated with a B minus, not to bad at my age, eh!
In 2014, I crossed the “ditch” for yet another experience in Australia. I am enjoying my work as a “Regional Relief Nurse” in Wheatbelt Region, working FIFO at different small sites in what we call”outback” country hospitals. I have met different patients, nurses and managers, you know what I mean here…
What goes up must always come down. I have a few years to put down my professional career. So I have to start preparing myself for retirement. I don’t want to be caught off “guard.”
Since my background has been a miner, I would like to pursue that route, this time not as a copper ore miner, but as a CRYPTOCURRENCY miner.
