Highlights

From hospital to community

Since young, Eddie Hee had a thing for science. When he chose to pursue a diploma in biomedical science, it came as no surprise to most. However, his choice of pursuing a nursing degree did meet with some concerns.

Bettering lives in the community

It was not an easy decision to leave a cushy job in the banking industry during the early years of my professional career. However, I yearned to do more.

Bringing nursing to the community

It all began when I was a little girl. In a family of healthcare workers, I had grown up on a diet of stories about the hospital and its patients.

Overcoming illness to regain purpose in life

Growing up, my childhood had been vastly different from my peers. A bulk of my adolescent days was spent at KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital for regular check-ups and monthly blood transfusions.

Eyeing progress

I did not choose to be a nurse. I had always been laidback, especially so as a teenager. Aware of my relaxed attitude, my anxious parents pushed me towards nursing, believing it to be a stable career.

President’s Award for Nurses 2019: A reflection

Three Chief Nurses from different health sectors (acute, primary and community care), one Deputy Director of Nursing and one Deputy director from the education sector… and one things unites them all.

The long road taken and beyond

Bright and approachable, 23-year-old Nicholas Chan remains humble despite the long road he has taken, starting from his days as a student nurse at the Institute of Technical Education College East.

My nursing family

Nursing found its way to me through my stint with a technology company in 2003 – the fateful year Singapore was hit by the Sars epidemic.

Inspiring young minds

It was my father who put the idea of nursing into my head. I applied to the School of Nursing in 1982 and the rest, as they say, is history.

More to community care than you think

Though I was enrolled in a digital media design course at Nanyang Polytechnic, I knew it was not what I wanted after one semester. I wanted to be in a profession that touched lives and made a difference.

Making a meaningful difference

Nuranis Mohamad (better known as Cindy) was motivated to take up an education in nursing when her mother was diagnosed with diabetes, and her father with kidney failure.

My little nursing dream

2009 was a trying year for the family. My dad had been involved in a road traffic accident, and it was painful watching the head of the family struggle.

A day in the life of a… mummy nurse!

I hope you enjoyed the short account of my double life as a mummy and a nurse! Some days, it gets even more hectic as I have to send my children for swimming classes.

Everyday heroes in your neighbourhood

We’re sure you already know all about what nurses do in the hospital. But have you ever wondered about what they do in the community? It’s a different ball game altogether!

I’m an Ah Ma and a nurse

She counts herself lucky to be blessed with supportive family members who never once doubted her passion for nursing and lifelong learning – even at the age of 53.

Into the heartlands

Nursing brings me satisfaction because it gives me the ability to make a positive difference in the lives of my patients. I am sure this is already a known

The ripple effect

As a nurse, she has a personal mission. She wants to advocate for better health management for her patients, especially those who are diabetic.

Every action counts

If there’s one thing I’ve learnt in my nursing journey so far, it’s this: Every little thing you do as a nurse makes a difference to your patients.

Heart for community nursing

Tampines Care Home Acting Director of Nursing Grace Ho once aspired to be a doctor or a pharmacist, but a major stomach surgery when she was 20 years old rerouted her path.
