A nurse of 78 this weekend celebrates 60 years of walking the wards-and she has no plans to retire.
Jackie Reid was 18 when she started work in 1953- when the National Health Service
(NHS) was just five years old - and is believed to be the oldest nurse in Britain.
The diabetes(糖尿病) specialist had to retire at 65 but returned as a nurse within two weeks and still does up to four seven-and-a-half hour shifts(轮班）each week.
Mrs. Reid said: “Nursing is hard if you do it correctly but I love my job.” Working for the NHS has been my life. I have no other hobbies because I have worked all my life.
Jackie has worked at a number of different hospitals--including one in Scotland.
Her specialist field has been diabetes for the past 40 years. She retrained after her 12-year-old daughter Michelle developed the disease. She currently works at Southend
Over the last 60 years she has treated tens of thousands of patients.
Jackie believes nursing should be protected from government cuts. She said: “There’re lots of things I would say to the government. If you are going to get good care you have to have the resources(资源), you can’t do it without enough money. They shouldn’t need the cuts that there are in the NHS. It’s hard now because there’s a shortage of staff.”
Jackie has lived alone in Grays, Essex, since her husband died three years ago. The couple have two daughters Michelle, 50, and Karen, 54.
Jackie added: “My youngest daughter worried about me-she doesn’t think I should work as much as I do. I constantly say ‘don’t worry about me, I’m fine’, but she never believes me. I don’t like the thought of giving it up and will try to keep going forever.”

Public Speaking Training
Get a coach
51 , so get help. Since there are about a billion companies out there all ready to offer you public speaking training and courses, here are some things to look for when deciding the training that’s right for you.
Focus on positives
Any training you do to become more effective at public speaking should always focus on the positive aspects of what you already do well. Nothing can hurt confidence more than being told that you aren’t doing well. 52 , so good public speaking training should develop those instead of telling you what you shouldn’t do.
If you find a public speaking course that looks as though it’s going to give you lots of dos and don’ts, walk away! Your brain is so full of what you’re going to be talking about. 54 . As far as we’re concerned, there are basically no hard and fast rules about public speaking. Your audience can be your friends.
You are a special person not a clone
Most importantly, good public speaking training should treat you as a special one, with your own personal habits. 55 .Your training course should help you bring out your personality, not try to turn you into someone you’re not.
A. You aren’t like anybody else
B. You already do lots of things well
C. Turn your back on too many rules
D. Check the rules about dos and don’ts
E. Whatever the presentation, public speaking is tough
F .The one thing you don’t want is for them to fall asleep
G. So trying to force a whole set of rules into it will just make things worse
56. In 1948.
57. It’s hard but she loves it.
58. After her daughter developed diabetes.
59. Not to make cuts in nursing.
60. Because she thinks her mother works too hard.
