Nursing the Heart
To mark Singapore’s Golden Jubilee and 130 years of Nursing in Singapore, SingHealth launched “Nursing the Heart”, a book written and produced by 100 nurses from across the Group’s healthcare institutions, at the 2015 SingHealth Nurses’ Day Celebrations.
“Nursing the Heart” is a compilation of 95 inspiring true stories and five poems, which outline memorable, personal experiences at work. It chronicles the challenges overcome by different generations of nurses reflected by significant events in Singapore’s history, from the Spyros disaster in 1978 to the SARS outbreak in 2003. The book goes behind the scenes as nurses share honest, heartwarming and emotional encounters with their patients and the camaraderie they share within the fraternity.
