Noor Hidayah Binte Abdul Hamid

My role as a nurse goes beyond meeting clinical needs. I also provide emotional support, comfort and a listening ear to my patients. Whether it is a first or repeat admission, many patients are at one of the most vulnerable times in their lives when they are hospitalised. Being a nurse, I have the privilege of caring for them with compassion, and to see to their physical, emotional and psychological well-being.

Working in an orthopaedic ward, I see patients go from requiring total assistance to being able to walk independently.

I witness their perseverance daily––their battle against illness, their willpower to stay positive and the tenacity to become independent once again. It motivates me to never give up and to have the patience to overcome difficult situations at work and in life.

What is unique about being a nurse?

As a nurse, I am an advocate for my patients as I spend a lot of time with them, and witness their recovery progress.

Working in an orthopaedic ward, I see patients go from requiring total assistance to being able to walk independently.

It gives me a sense of satisfaction to see my patients be independent once again.

If you could have one superpower as a nurse, what would it be?

The ability to multiply as it would allow me to be with my patients all the time without them having to wait for me to attend to them.
