​“As nurses take on greater responsibilities, our roles have expanded and many of us undergo advanced training in order to excel in various areas, giving rise to roles such as Advanced Practice Nurses, Patient Navigators, nurses specialising in heart failure, diabetic education and others.

In future, nurses may lead the management of certain diseases while collaborating with doctors and other healthcare professionals.   I would like to continue learning and go for cross-training opportunities in order to have greater exposure.”
