#CouragetoCareSG: A career switch with no regrets

When I learnt that I would be on the front line during this COVID-19 outbreak, my immediate concern was how it would affect my loved ones, particularly my elderly parents who live with me. Yet, I soldiered on despite the trying circumstances.

#CouragetoCareSG: Helping patients fight COVID and anxiety

During the SARS outbreak in 2003, I was working alongside fellow nurses at Tan Tock Seng Hospital. That invaluable experience gave me the confidence and strength to care for COVID-19 patients at the Institute of Mental Health today.

#CouragetoCareSG: Fighting COVID and helping patients with dementia at Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home

When I was seconded to Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home, I was well aware that I would be caring for about 99 residents who might have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus. However, I did not feel any fear of safety for myself.

Teachers’ Day – On the front lines of nursing education

Ngee Ann Polytechnic nursing lecturer Mis’Rohaiza Amin plays an important role in grooming nursing students for the bigger challenges they will face as registered nurses. She shares her thoughts on being on the front lines of nursing education.

#CouragetoCareSG: Strength in solidarity

Like many, I wanted to contribute. When Ng Teng Fong General Hospital called for staff volunteers to join the fight against COVID-19, I had no qualms about it.

#CouragetoCareSG: Finding honour in serving

Deeply honoured! That was how I felt when asked to fight COVID-19 on the front line.

#CouragetoCareSG: A frontline nurse’s juggling act

The past few months have been a whirlwind for Senior Nurse Manager Tan Pek Hoon, Head Nurse of Yishun Polyclinic, National Healthcare Group Polyclinics (NHGP).

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.

Watch our everyday heroes in action!

For Staff Nurse Lea E. Tandoc-Nuñez from Ng Teng Fong General Hospital, she believes that a #nurse has five types of hearts to give.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“For Chapter 8, I visualised a nurse saving thousands of lives. The hearts represent the people healed by the caring hands of nurses. It is more than just helping sick people. It shows that a nurse has all kinds of hearts to give. A heart of courage and bravery; a responsible heart; a heart full of passion; a heart of selflessness and sacrifice; and a heart of inspiration and unsung heroes.”

For Senior Staff Nurse Suhaimi Kasmon of Singapore General Hospital, being a photographer in this project reminded him that a photo is more than just a picture. Armed with his Nikon D750, he had the unique chance of shadowing and capturing snapshots of a fellow nurse who works in a different setting. Here’s what he has to say:

“It was a rare opportunity to capture photos of a prison nurse in his element, to see the depth of meaning behind his every expression. It reminded me that every photo tells a story. Nursing and photography will remain my lifelong passions.”

When Betty Kwong, Assistant Director of Nursing at St John’s - St Margaret’s Nursing Home was seconded to Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home in the COVID-19 outbreak, she was well aware that she would be caring for about 99 residents who might have been exposed to the virus.

Despite these challenging times, there were occasional sweet moments with her patients that became her source of strength. She even stood in as an interim “hairdresser” for one resident who insisted on having her hair trimmed!

During this pandemic, the paediatric ward that KK Women's and Children's Hospital Senior Staff Nurse Nur Asyiqin was working at was transformed into an isolation ward dedicated to caring for young COVID-19 patients, as well as their caregivers.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The sudden chaos and changes of dealing with a viral infection would shake anyone, but SSN Asyiqin and her team hit the ground running, thanks to the rigorous preparations that were put into place ever since SARS in 2003.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The notion of bringing the virus home to her family was a thought she couldn’t shake off — even with the strict protocols in place. Thankfully, her family and friends showered her with support and encouraged her to continue the fight. That was enough to help her barrel through all her anxieties and to make her job #1 priority.

"What an honour to join this project and work with other nurses! It was a memorable experience. My artwork for Chapter 4 shows that nursing is a journey. Every step you take and everything you see, be it success or failure, will be the milestone for a better tomorrow."

For Senior Staff Nurse Bibi Wong of Tan Tock Seng Hospital, who is part of the team of artists behind the collection of artworks in the nursing book, her illustration speaks volumes about what it truly means to be in the nursing profession — a fulfilling journey of progress and innovation with patient care in mind.

Drawings speak louder than words. Check out Bibi's artwork alongside seven other artists in this specially produced book that celebrates 135 years of nursing in Singapore: "Nursing - Our Profession, Our Pride".

Armed with her Canon 800D, Senior Staff Nurse Wong Yu Rui at National Heart Centre Singapore spent much of last year hustling about various healthcare institutions in Singapore, capturing moments to be immortalised in the nursing book. While she was excited to be able to play her part in this special project, she was doubly encouraged by the heartening words of her nursing seniors.

"It was my honour to contribute my little strength to this big project. I enjoyed working with the editorial team and even learnt some photography skills in the process. Also, it was very encouraging to have some of my super seniors in nursing encouraging me."

Ethan's decision to switch to #nursing was in the making since university, after he witnessed how the #nurses took great care of his grandmother in a nursing home. Unfortunately, his parents were against the idea at the time.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fast forward today, Ethan took a leap of faith to make a career switch and is now a Staff Nurse at @ren_ci_hospital who has been on the front line since the COVID-19 outbreak. Though it’s been a tough fight, Ethan has also received endless love and encouragement from his management team, patients, family and friends.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As clichéd as it may sound, the biggest lesson he has taken away from this pandemic is that we should take nothing for granted and, as what Marie Kondo would say, to live a life that sparks joy.

Have you seen the wonderful artwork painted by Senior Nurse Educator Cheah Mee Wen from @sengkang_general_hospital in Chapter 2 of 'Nursing - Our Profession, Our Pride"? It illustrates beautifully how nurses constantly seek to improve patient care through education and technological advancements. It is truly art from the heart!
 
"This project has renewed my interest in art. Juggling work and this art assignment was challenging, fun and de-stressing at the same time. I used acrylic paint to capture the theme of Chapter 2, books to signify education, progressing to the electronic pad, with caring from the heart."

From taking portraits to street and landscape photography, Mark spends most of his time overseas honing his skills while learning more about the country and its people. Read what he has to say below on working with fellow nurses on the book.

"Even though I had to sacrifice some personal time for photo shoots, I am truly excited to see everyone's hard work in this nursing book. Not only did I learn a lot by helping with this book, I was reminded that nursing is truly a noble profession and I will always be proud of it."

From taking portraits to street and landscape photography, Mark spends most of his time overseas honing his skills while learning more about the country and its people. Read what he has to say below on working with fellow nurses on the book.

"Even though I had to sacrifice some personal time for photo shoots, I am truly excited to see everyone's hard work in this nursing book. Not only did I learn a lot by helping with this book, I was reminded that nursing is truly a noble profession and I will always be proud of it."

Ethan's decision to switch to #nursing was in the making since university, after he witnessed how the #nurses took great care of his grandmother in a nursing home. Unfortunately, his parents were against the idea at the time.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fast forward today, Ethan took a leap of faith to make a career switch and is now a Staff Nurse at @ren_ci_hospital who has been on the front line since the COVID-19 outbreak. Though it’s been a tough fight, Ethan has also received endless love and encouragement from his management team, patients, family and friends.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As clichéd as it may sound, the biggest lesson he has taken away from this pandemic is that we should take nothing for granted and, as what Marie Kondo would say, to live a life that sparks joy.

Have you seen the wonderful artwork painted by Senior Nurse Educator Cheah Mee Wen from @sengkang_general_hospital in Chapter 2 of 'Nursing - Our Profession, Our Pride"? It illustrates beautifully how nurses constantly seek to improve patient care through education and technological advancements. It is truly art from the heart!
 
"This project has renewed my interest in art. Juggling work and this art assignment was challenging, fun and de-stressing at the same time. I used acrylic paint to capture the theme of Chapter 2, books to signify education, progressing to the electronic pad, with caring from the heart."

When Betty Kwong, Assistant Director of Nursing at St John’s - St Margaret’s Nursing Home was seconded to Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home in the COVID-19 outbreak, she was well aware that she would be caring for about 99 residents who might have been exposed to the virus.

Despite these challenging times, there were occasional sweet moments with her patients that became her source of strength. She even stood in as an interim “hairdresser” for one resident who insisted on having her hair trimmed!

For Staff Nurse Lea E. Tandoc-Nuñez from Ng Teng Fong General Hospital, she believes that a #nurse has five types of hearts to give.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“For Chapter 8, I visualised a nurse saving thousands of lives. The hearts represent the people healed by the caring hands of nurses. It is more than just helping sick people. It shows that a nurse has all kinds of hearts to give. A heart of courage and bravery; a responsible heart; a heart full of passion; a heart of selflessness and sacrifice; and a heart of inspiration and unsung heroes.”

For Senior Staff Nurse Suhaimi Kasmon of Singapore General Hospital, being a photographer in this project reminded him that a photo is more than just a picture. Armed with his Nikon D750, he had the unique chance of shadowing and capturing snapshots of a fellow nurse who works in a different setting. Here’s what he has to say:

“It was a rare opportunity to capture photos of a prison nurse in his element, to see the depth of meaning behind his every expression. It reminded me that every photo tells a story. Nursing and photography will remain my lifelong passions.”

Check out the myriad of expressions that were portrayed in this book. “Nursing – Our Profession, Our Pride” celebrates 135 years of nursing in Singapore through a collection of stories about all things nursing and charts the growth of the profession since 1997.

During this pandemic, the paediatric ward that KK Women's and Children's Hospital Senior Staff Nurse Nur Asyiqin was working at was transformed into an isolation ward dedicated to caring for young COVID-19 patients, as well as their caregivers.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The sudden chaos and changes of dealing with a viral infection would shake anyone, but SSN Asyiqin and her team hit the ground running, thanks to the rigorous preparations that were put into place ever since SARS in 2003.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The notion of bringing the virus home to her family was a thought she couldn’t shake off — even with the strict protocols in place. Thankfully, her family and friends showered her with support and encouraged her to continue the fight. That was enough to help her barrel through all her anxieties and to make her job #1 priority.

Armed with her Canon 800D, Senior Staff Nurse Wong Yu Rui at National Heart Centre Singapore spent much of last year hustling about various healthcare institutions in Singapore, capturing moments to be immortalised in the nursing book. While she was excited to be able to play her part in this special project, she was doubly encouraged by the heartening words of her nursing seniors.

"It was my honour to contribute my little strength to this big project. I enjoyed working with the editorial team and even learnt some photography skills in the process. Also, it was very encouraging to have some of my super seniors in nursing encouraging me."

To see Yu Rui's photography, alongside those of 11 other nurse photographers, flip through the pages of this specially produced book that celebrates 135 years of nursing in Singapore: "Nursing - Our Profession, Our Pride".
