Making a Difference Every Day
At the forefront of service excellence, our nurses set high standards for delivering exemplary care to patients every day.
We support our nurses' personal and professional growth at every stage of their career. Being a nurse at IHH lets you discover your passion and develop your strengths.
One star in the sky is never bright; we need multiple stars.
- Elaine Ng, Group Head of Nursing, IHH
Our Nursing Philosophy
We nurture thinking nurses with a heart, embracing the three tenets: Professionalism, Expertise and Advocacy.
Professionalism is defined as establishing caring and therapeutic relationships with team members and patients actively and collaboratively.
Expertise is about lifelong learning and keeping oneself up to date with evidence-based knowledge and skills for the delivery of efficient, safe and quality care.
Advocacy redefines the nurse-patient relationship by having nurses advocate patient rights and empowering patients in the process to make decisions in the best interest of their health.
