Professional Practice Model

This is fostered within a supportive environment that values transparency, open-mindedness, appreciation and curiosity. This includes initiatives such as Preceptorship, Charge Nurse, GNRP, Mentoring programmes, and Leadership Walkabouts.

Innovative & Knowledgeable

Our nurses are innovative and knowledgeable, equipped with unique and specialised skills to provide safe, high-quality patient care. The professional training and education opportunities available at NUH allow nurses to stay updated with the latest technology, research, evidence-based nursing practices, and critical thinking skills that they can apply and adapt in patient care.

Collaborative Partners

The Two Men & Jigsaw Puzzlerepresent our commitment to being collaborative partners with other healthcare professionals, patients and their families. These partnerships are built on trust, mutual respect, effective communication, shared ownership and a common goal to enhance patient safety and elevate the quality of care. We also advocate for shared decision-making, where nurses at every level govern their practice and are involved in all decisions affecting nursing practice.

Exemplary Professionals

The Star embodies our commitment to stand out as exemplary professionals, guided by the TRICE values. We are dedicated to caring with compassion, practicing with integrity and passion, fostering unity, and consistently striving for excellence.
