What Nursing Has Taught Me

11 October 2022

I stepped in nursing field 7 years ago. In 2015, I started my student nurse life in Singapore and start to have passion on it. There are many things that motivated me to choose nursing as my career. As nurses, our specialty is that we are providing care for total strangers when they are at their most vulnerable during hospitalization. Nursing has taught me how to be more patient and empathetic towards others. I have learned how important it is for patients to have someone that actually listens to them, talks to them and supports them through their difficult journey. Nursing has been a rewarding and fulfilling career that can make a difference in patient’s lives and be inspired by them too.

Dear patient, thank you so much for the kindness that you have shown me. You always have a way to make me smile. You have no idea how much that meant to me. Thank you for reminding me why I’m here and why I choose to be a nurse. It’s you, who makes me want to be a better person. It’s my honour to have the opportunity to take care of you. Thank you for being part of my nursing journey~
