Nursing Department

About Us

At our Nursing Department, we employ more than 3000 nurses whose focus is on providing care of the highest quality to our patients.

Our nurses form an integral part of our dedicated care team, backed by the latest in clinical and information technologies. Through the years, we have re-engineered the roles of our nurses to assume a higher range of clinical responsibilities, and adopted the use of the e-Rostering and Patient Acuity Systems to improve patient care as well as the work-life balance of our staff.

Nurses are encouraged to learn, grow and contribute to shaping our practices through continuing education programmes and evidence based nursing. Our mentoring and career development programmes serve to expand their supervisory and management skills, develop specialised clinical skills including advanced nursing practice, and grow their capabilities in nursing education and evidence based nursing.

While the dedication, commitment and team spirit of our culturally diverse pool of nurses form the foundation of the Department of Nursing, our vision, mission and philosophy aim to bring our professionalism and the level of care to new heights.
